Man, if he thought the Challenger interior is cheap, I'd hate to see what he'd say about the interior in my Gen 6 Camaro! It makes the Hellcat's interior look like a one off hand made Michelangelo.

Everything else I heard is "let's compare this to a BMW". They got the fun factor right at least.

Bottom line, snow flakes shouldn't review cars they don't understand. It's like putting me in a Tesla.

I watched it prior to my Charger Hellcat purchase and thought that it was a really good review. Its not easy finding actually informative video reviews along with decent filming and editing.

I agree, overall an informative vid. The main guy seems to understand what the HC is about, but just can't like it. I think he needs a goldplated plush Prius.
I must just be a hick (sorry Hickster).
But you know when I get in a CAR, I expect to see automobile parts that work and don't fail or fall apart. Proper instrumentation. I hate buzzes and rattles. Parts fitting and lining up kinda a nice bonus. Supportive seats. Stuff like that. I do NOT expect or want to enter the library or sitting room at the mansion. I find the Challenger interior simple and purposeful. I bought the HC for the insane mechanicals and the cool muscle car vibe. It delivers in spades!

Except for that turn signal stalk. That's pretty bad.

IMO the interior (leather) is as nice as about anything unless you spend more than $150k. The dash is laid out great, we can at least see out of our cars (which I cannot say the same for about any of the other "American" made competition), we have ample interior room, and it IS real comfortable (triple lower lumbar fused back here). The instruments are easy to read and adjust differently depending on what you need or want to monitor. Yep, I have bought a '15, loved it, sold it and got an "improved" (again IMO) Redeye Widebody.

Agree with @JRabq
The whiner needs a Prius.... And a Kleenex.

Thought it was a fair report. Just because he doesnt agree with you doesnt mean he is wrong. He said For $80k the car should have a nicer interior. Yeah it prob should There should be SOMETHING at that price that differentiates it from the Scat or the SXT. sounds like 2020 does just that. DOnt know what that will do to the price though. Personally I think the interior is fine, I kind of like it. But IMO he isnt wrong. He didnt say it didnt work or it isnt comfortable etc. He acknowledged the room, the visibility, the functionality. He wouldnt buy one, ok so what, but he didnt hate on the car, he gave it a good review. He acknowledges there are people that do like it and that the car does appeal to a certain buyer and that it has its place and that It IS fun. Yeah you cant use all the power with the tires on the street, is he wrong? IMO no but you can try and adjust your driving. Ive watched his reviews on the new WRX, the STI, and a few other cars Ive owned and driven 30+k miles. He's 95%+ right on all of them good and bad.

Agree, that is why I liked the review, it was balanced. Wasn't from a uber fan or a hater. Reasonable.
