Car reviews: 2011 Dodge Avenger



You know what you like and what you need, so if you’re thinking of getting an Avenger, the 2011 edition has some improvements that will suit you. This car is not a superstar and compared to other Sedans, it has its pros and cons. However, you may not be looking for a superstar at all and this perfectly good car will do the trick.

New and improved interior
It may seem like an overstatement in most cases where the differences lie mostly in the mechanical aspects and only a few brushes into the interior design. However, the Avenger has actually improved its inside’s prettiness. The most heard complaint about previous models was that the materials felt and looked cheap and outdated; and that it resembled a rental car. The previous Avenger was nothing to be proud of.
The 2011 has had an incredible makeover that shows in its contoured dash, new steering wheel and materials that are sort to the touch of its driver.
The magnitude of the cabin is essentially the same, with a decent amount of leg room, though if the car will be filled with adults on a daily routine, this may not be the greatest of choices among sedans.

Performance features
This may not be, as I stated before, the superstar of cars, but it has nothing to envy to the rest of the sedans.
The express and Mainstreet Avengers have the only option of a base 2.4 liter inline-4 cylinder engine with 173 horsepower and 166 pound-feet of torque; and while the Express has a four-speed automatic transmission, the Mainstreet, Heat and Lux come with a six-speed transmission.
The four-cylinder is expected to run 21 miles per gallon on the city versus 30 miles per gallon on a highway, which leads to 24 miles combined.
The Heat and the Lux enjoy a 3.6 liter engine with 283 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. As far as fuel economy, this engine is expected to run 19 miles per gallon in the city versus 29 on a highway, which leads to 22 miles per gallon on combined routes.

Safety matters
As a standard for all of the available Dodge Avengers you can find:
·         Active front seat restraints
·         Airbags
o    Front seat side
o    Full length side curtains
