    Anyone out there with kids have a pic of how a car seat fits in the back? I'm just curious since I will likely have to do that at some point. The space would likely be the same as other Chargers but the front seats are different. Didn't know if the rear seats are different because of the heated function.

    Thanks.

    with my 2011 i had 2 car seats and 1 booster at the same time....all 3 fit just fine....i had to buckle all of them though because it was too tight.....your car seat will fit just fine...i still have 1 in a booster

    i doubt anyone takes photo's of their car seat

    when i measured a 2010 challenger vs a 2010 charger i found the challenger to be 1" wider.....not sure if thats still the case in 2015, but im sure its still close

    Thanks Huggy. One of the reasons I went with the Charger is that I have two little ones and needed the rear doors. Just wondered about the fitment. Thanks again.

    Don't worry Grand Caravan Hellcat SRT is coming for when you have the twins.

    You won't have any problems. There is a lot of room in the back of the Charger. They have the tether connectors for the car seat also. You will be set. 2 will fit very easily.

    if the only reason you bought the charger over the challenger is the kids and back seat access then you made a mistake in my opinion...i was the same way in 2011....i considered a 2010 charger.......but when i realized the back seat was pretty close to the same size i went with the 2 door....it was never really a big deal to use 1 door to get all the kids in and strap them all in

    i had a sienna.......my testicles shrank smaller and smaller the longer i owed it......now i have a GMC crew cab for the family....and i had to buy all new pants since i have my balls back

    That is so awesome! The sippy cup between the seats totally sets it off! :D

    It wasn't the only reason, but one of many. Adults don't necessarily like having to climb into the back seat with a two door so I went with the Charger. Just a difference in opinion. I like the Challenger as well but the Charger just had lines that I like. Plus, in white...it looks a little more like a sleeper IMHO. ;)

    The van is what my wife hauls the kids around in anyway. I still have a street bike (RC51) and I still race karts and enduro dirt bikes too so no worries about ball shrinkage. :D

    I don't have a picture (sans child), but we installed our front facing toddler seat behind the passenger in the Charger while still at the dealership. Plenty of room.

    Don't have our charger hellcat yet, but our 2011 r/t charger fits the car seat perfectly. Both rear and forward facing. We plan to have another kiddo in the near future, so the hellcat will be my mom mobile ;)

    Here is my son in the back of the 2015 392 I test drove a little while ago. And that is the larger of the two car seats we have and he fit just fine with the sales guy in the front seat. I am also going for a charger due to the back seat and four doors. just so much easier with the extra doors.

    I was going to ask this question of the Chally a few weeks ago. I knew I'd take a beating for doing so and I chickened out.

    Something else I'm worried about is stretching out the laguna and compressing the seat foam. I hate what the carseat has done to my wife's leather in the Jeep, but my Longhorn leather held up pretty well. Anyone have some tips to keep from jacking up my seats other than cutting some plywood and throwing it under the carseat?
