The Avenger brings a dash of bold American styling to the rather sober and safe-looking large family car segment. Available only as a saloon, the Avenger is roomy and priced against cars like the Kia Magentis.

Summary

Parkers Rating:

2 out of 5

The Avenger brings a dash of bold American styling to the rather sober and safe-looking large family car segment. Available only as a saloon, the Avenger is roomy and priced against cars like the Kia Magentis. However it's a less well executed vehicle and although it comes with a good diesel engine, borrowed from Volkswagen, it's an average car at best.

The poor quality interior and flimsy plastics only reinforce the budget feel and on the road the lack of refinement and sophistication are all too evident.

 The MyGig system, very easy to use. handy to have all your music in one place, loads of space to store stuff. The car itself is huge!loads of room for people can easily fit 5 adults in it!
