Benefits of Driving a 2011 Dodge Avenger Sedan
For a mid-sized sedan, the Avenger stands out in two ways: aggressive, sporty styling, which is borrowed from the Dodge Charger, and its fuel economy, which can manage as high as 30 mpg on the highway. The Avenger's new, redesigned interior features nicer materials and is quieter than in years past, and its upgraded styling and quality makes it a viable alternative in a crowded small car market. The R/T Avenger appeals to driving enthusiasts, and includes sporty suspension, leather interior and special exterior styling.
