Default 2008 Dodge Avenger

Looks just like the concept shown earlier this year.

Looks nice but I would rather take the New Malibu.

It's hard to believe that this is a 2007 model. It looks so dated, but not in a cool-retro way. Remember the Dodge Diplomats and 600s from the Iaccoca era? This car is even uglier than the current Charger, which is a mess.

I like the looks of the interior (apart from the design of the door handle), but the materials don't get me excited - you'd expect these a class or two below the Avenger.

At least the exterior is nicer than the Sebring.

Definitely nicer than the Sebring. Still, this is NOT a step forward. The car looks stunted, either too narrow or too tall, I can't decide.

The positive for me is the interior gauge cluster. Especially the speedometer, which actually shows speed in 10 mph increments. Lately, everyone seems to be going to 20 mph increments (numbers for 20, 40, 60, 80 etc mph, and dashes inbetween).

I'm young, my eyes are good, and I still have trouble decoding how fast I'm going, so it's nice to see a car company not going with the trendy thing for once.

I think it looks good. It's not as dated as some people are saying. It has clean, simple and elegant lines, having just the right dose of agressiveness to make it really masculine. The interior is nice, though the materials seem to be the usual cheap looking ones spread in the entire Dodge line-up. I'd say Dodge did a good job, this car is a lot better than the Sebring.

The car should do great in Europe. Interior vs. the price is a plus. I really think they should have spent more time on the exterior design.

It could do good in Europe..problem is sedans of this size DONT do well here, people are hatch fanatic remember? And the interior looks cheap and dull to me, its not bad but compared to, lets say, an Opel Astra (its the closest in character i can think of) it looks unimpressive. If the price is right though who knows..

I have no idea what is going on at C-pillar. Everything up to that point works, and then boom! It's like trying to finish up a book with an exciting end, but having no ideas which fit the whole plot, so the end result ends up being a complete mess.

No class, no style, just utter confusion. Interior is ok...but already looks dated. Though it's ok for US market since most of US manus have interiors that are stuck in mid 90s. Exception being the CTS.

It won't be too successful in Europe, unless the price will be really tempting.
