It's always been a 5 person car, while the Camaro and Mustang are 4 person cars.

By that I mean in reviews and stuff it always says the Challenger seats 5, while it says Mustangs and Camaros seat 4. I can count on one hand the number of times I've had 4 people in my car though.

I have to disagree. I can pull both my seats on my Camaro all the way up and it will look like that. Look at the interior size and compare the 3 cars. VERY CLOSE.

My Camaro is a two seater, no backstreet riders, that's what my Jeep Grand Cherokee is for.

After having been in the back seat of a Camaro and a Challenger, the Challenger's back seat has a lot more room. It's not that far off a Charger. It's a lot roomier up front as well.

Not a dig on the Camaro, the Challenger is just simply a bigger car.

Not arguing that the Challenger has more room, it does, but it's really the foot room that makes the difference between the Camaro and Challenger. The Camaro backseat has a lot of room, except where you place your feet (and getting in and out, but all 2 door, 4 seat cars have that problem). Just look at the Camaro convertible picks and see how big that back seat looks.

Maybe GM can do something to back seat foot room in a future model year.

If back seat comfort is important, why even consider buying a coupe?

I agree about the room though!

Different strokes for different folks man. And the selection of fun sedans in this price range sucks ass.

Keep in my the challenger is built on the same platform as the charger. It has the same dimensions as the very comfortable 4 door. And IMO a much nicer interior as well as more room.

There is no free lunch. You can't have a bigger car without sacrificing performance elements, unless price goes up. If you want more, pay more ... or don't complain that you lost out on something else. When I bought my coupe, I knew that I'd hardly ever have a 3rd passenger. And since I liked the styling better on the 2 door, thats what I decided to buy. But if there was going to be 3-4 people in the car on a regular basis I'd have gotten a sedan, or perhaps a larger car altogether. Why? Because sitting in the back seat of a coupe sucks. Space is compromised, they're difficult to get into and out of, the windows are usually fixed in place, they're harder to see out of ... all sorts of problems. I just can't imagine anyone who truly values the comfort of rear passengers ever seriously considering a coupe over a sedan.

I ain't complaining. If a little extra space makes the difference for you and you like a 2dr. Well here ya go. It'd work fine for someone with teens where they very rarely go anywhere with you, and they're going to bitch about it anyway.

The room is one of the main reasons I prefer the Challenger, not just in back but the front seating area is a lot roomier and more airy as well.

I didn't say it was important. That doesn't mean it isn't nice to have. Also, I paid for my back seat, so I can say what I like about it.

My camaro is only a 3 seater. That picture doesn't look like there's leg room for the back seats either if you have anyone over 6 feet in front. As for the size of the seat, it's huge! too bad it lowers the visibility out the back window by making it smaller.

G8s, Evo, STi, Chargers, etc. All of those cars are damn good performance sedans for ~$40K new IMO.

I guess when you chop two doors off a sedan...that'll happen.

That's because the challenger is nothing more than a charger/300 in disguise.

They also one upped ford and chevy in the weight department. The camaro sure was tough competition but seems dodge was determined to be top dog and just edged them out.

Btw my 2door galaxie seats 6 so dodge is still very inefficient full siZed and only having 80% of the seating capacity of the old stuff tisk tisk. FYI I hope u catch the sarcasm
