As the Avenger approaches the conclusion of its life cycle—2014 was its final year in production—it has lost some of its competitiveness.
The 2014 Avenger is a bad pre-owned vehicle. There isn't much to enjoy about it outside its powerful engines and balanced handling.
Despite having adequate power for daily driving, the Avenger's standard 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine is not extremely fuel-efficient.
The Avenger's maximum city and highway fuel economy with the basic engine and standard four-speed automatic transmission is 21 and 29 miles per gallon, respectively.
The Avenger manages to find a nice mix between handling and ride quality, but several rivals are more agile around turns.
The Avenger received four out of five stars overall and in each of the evaluated categories in crash tests conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The Avenger's safety ratings are among the lowest in the midsize car segment, despite the fact that they aren't inherently poor.
The majority of rivals at least provide parking sensors or a rearview camera, and some even provide more sophisticated safety features like lane departure warning or blind spot monitoring.
