New Challenger Exterior
The updates are fairly subtle but if we look closely the designer have been at work giving the Challenger a new appearance that does two things, first is making a retro-est throwback sports car a little more modern, with new lights at front and back, new sculpting and great looking new wheels and second is ensuring that from every angle and despite the updates it still looks like a Challenger. It have a nice wide flat hood and trunk and sleek two door roof line.
Inside updated trim interface and styling touches are applied but like the body you still know it’s a Challenger straightaway. Thin windows low roof a mile of dash after you and a mile of hood ahead of you, it still have a big cabin easily accessed and comfortably occupied even by big guys. Back seats can be used by adults and aren’t cramped either. Materials, controls and switches are more modern and up-to-date and even the installed in the center the big 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system. With 16.2 cu/ft the trunk is quite large and useful. The Challenger have the five star safety rating as well.
