Exterior

What the design of the 2017 Dodge Charger gives us is a combination of traditional and modern. The vehicle manages to combine elements of old muscle cars of yore and some traditional features that have made the Charger notable and likeable in the past and fits them perfectly with some new and improved aesthetics that are provided in a modern way. The familiar Coke-bottle shape of the car is a welcoming feature and does remind us of the past models a bit and we like it, but it still manages to surprise us, or rather particularly the younger crowd with new contemporary elements.

There are some short front and rear overhangs combined for the car and have been added, while the new grille and some other modern part of the car and aligned with the current and newer Dodge models. It actually borrows a lot form the Durango R/T trim, which is actually a perfect choice here as this is without a doubt the most sportiest version of the Dart model that we have had. The model is sleek and can dart through air like a knife through butter, making it a perfect aerodynamic wonder.

Interior

The 2017 Dodge Charger manages to update the interior just enough, although there are still some kinks that still have to be worked out. This mainly concerns the ride comfort of the car, but if we take a look and compared to the ride quality we can let the situation slide, so to say. There are some big doors made available for the car which makes entering the car much easier and once you do get to the inside the comforts are immense. Particularly the back seat area is quite roomy and has more of the standards and comfort features than we have expected with plenty of room to boot.

With overall interior materials being at its all-time high, we have a pretty fascinating setup for the people in the ca. You will feel ultimately comfortable and immensely happy because of the soft-touch materials placed all around the cabin. The car also boasts with the five-star safety rating granted by the NHTSA safety testing, which is the sole proof that this model earns a lot of praise. The model also places a lot of emphasis on the equipment being used, making the 2017 Dodge Charger a technological wonder. These include an AM/FM/CD audio system with touchscreen control,  power windows, locks, and mirrors, a power driver’s seat, keyless ignition and plenty more.
