2009 Dodge Challenger: How Much Room is Back There?

October 08, 2009

Last week we were asked how much room was in the back of the Camaro. Last week I answered that question: Not much.

This week I thought you'd be interested to see how the Challenger fares.

Much better. If the Camaro fit .78 Riswicks, the Challenger accommodates .98 Riswicks. Legroom is better than the Chevy, but still not impressive (I still had to move the seat up). Head room is obviously way better since I can sit upright and don't look like I'm about to be executed. I'd say it's a bit better than the 135i.

As a bonus, the Challenger adds rear HVAC vents, a center armrestand a little light in the front seatback. There's also a seat belt for a middle passenger, but I'd hate to be that guy.
