2007 Dodge Charger SRT8: Long-Distance Comfort
by Ed Hellwig, Executive Editor on December 24, 2015
Take one look at the seats in our 2007 Dodge Charger and it's obvious that they are some serious thrones. But that's not always a good thing as some performance seats are so aggressive that you quickly grow tired of their constant grip. Remember the Focus ST?
As I learned on a recent two-and-a-half hour slog home in traffic the other night, these chairs don't wear on you. They are indeed aggressive, but not in a way that makes you start thinking of backing them off once you get settled. You can feel the side bolsters, yet they don't constantly dig into your side as if to remind you that you can take the next off-ramp at ludicrous speed if you want.
Even better is the fact that the cushions themselves aren't stuffed so tightly that you can't sink into them a little. Having a little give helps when you're parked in the same position for hours on end. None of this is obvious the minute you sit down in our Charger's seats, but after driving it several days in a row I grew to like the combination of comfort and support.
