Dodge Avenger rivals

The Avenger brings a dash of bold American styling to the rather sober and safe-looking large family car segment. Available only as a saloon, the Avenger is roomy and priced against cars like the Kia Magentis. However it's a less well executed vehicle and although it comes with a good diesel engine, borrowed from Volkswagen, it's an average car at best.

The poor quality interior and flimsy plastics only reinforce the budget feel and on the road the lack of refinement and sophistication are all too evident.
