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.

Running costs

While the Avenger is priced against mainstream rivals, despite its high level of equipment, it has a budget car feel - list prices are a little high as they are. Fuel consumption is competitive with large saloons with similar power outputs but depreciation will be steep in a market of fast depreciating cars.
