Few changes were made to the 2010 Avenger, and they mostly fall into safety systems. Four-wheel anti-lock brakes are now standard on all models, along with driver and front passenger active head restraints. There's an upgraded instrument cluster for the interior, but for the most part, standard features and options remain the same.
Sporty styling; safety; long list of cool high-tech options
For a mid-sized sedan, the Avenger stands out in two ways: its aggressive, sporty styling, which is borrowed from the Dodge Charger, and its fuel economy, which hits 30 mpg on the highway. It also has an impressive selection of gadgets, such as the standard Chill Zone bin for keeping drinks cool and a year of Sirius Satellite Radio. Upgrading from the base-level Avenger to the sportier R/T means a nicer interior and the a more powerful optional V6 engine.
