The Avenger, like the related Chrysler 200, is still an uncompetitive design that trails all other midsized sedans. On the plus side, the ride is compliant and the optional V6 is strong and smooth. The noisy and unrefined 173-hp four-cylinder gets only 21 mpg overall, the same as the 283-hp V6. The slow-shifting six-speed automatic doesn't shift particularly smoothly. Though the soft suspension provides decent isolation, it also allows frequent body motions, and handling lacks agility. Rear visibility is lousy. Most controls are straightforward and interior quality acceptable.
