I sat in an Avenger yesterday which may not have had the unique layout of an Elantra, but the materials were absolutely on par with it. I'm assuming the Dart's interior will be made of similar materials.

That being said, American automakers still aren't where we'd like them to be in terms of interior quality and design, but to say that they haven't made strides recently is nothing but ignorant.
To say that they haven't made strides would be incorrect but saying they have made serious strides is like saying they won a specific type of Olympics if you know what I am getting at. As far as the Avenger; I can't agree. The closest I can get to a decent interior in an American car in this class, would be the new Ford Focus.
