Interior Design and Special Features
Inside, the Nitro has a somewhat industrial feel, though faux aluminum accents brighten the place up a bit. An upright seating position provides a good view out the front, and liberal use of soft cushioning makes it easy to get comfortable. Legroom is ample for adults in the reclining backseat, though the bench is mounted too low for optimal comfort.
There are 32 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seat; with the rear seats folded, there are 65 cubic feet of cargo space available. The front passenger seat can also fold forward to aid in carrying long items.
New Hampshire Dodge shoppers looking for a blend of powerful performance capabilities with ample passenger and cargo space will find all of that and more in the 2011 Dodge Nitro. Make your appointment for a test drive today by calling 877-204-7607.
