Dodge Caliber SRT-4: Interior impression
The interior decorators at Mopar have done something with the Caliber SRT-4 that is not easily accomplished. The interior is both functional and stylish at the same time. It incorporates comfortable materials, colorful accents and some high end pieces as well.
The seats are the first thing that you notice, and feel, when you get into the car. They are shaped like traditional racing buckets with large leather bolsters to keep the occupant in place, while the cloth inserts grip the driver even better in the event they decide to push the SRT-4 to the limit. Aside from being functional the seats are also stylish. The black leather is accented by two rows of red stitching running up either side of the buckets and feature large SRT logos embroidered onto the seat backs. The red accents continue with the shift boot and steering wheel. The two pieces also feature a leather material that looks like the weave of carbon fiber.

The polished aluminum pedals on the Caliber SRT-4 are true performance parts thanks to the rubber inserts. While the shiny surface is pleasing to the eye, the small black circles help the driver to grip the pedals even better. My favorite part of the SRT-4 interior is the boost gauge. Not only is Autometer a well known aftermarket gauge manufacturer, but the fact that Dodge had SRT inscribed onto its face is just plain cool.
