2013 Dodge Dart Review

The all new 2013 Dodge Dart is a modern compact car that is designed to exceed the expectations of American car buyers.

Of course, Americans want a roomy car, but the rising cost of gasoline favors a small city car compared to a heavy full size sedan, especially in city traffic.

The Dodge Dart is destined to further help Dodge increase their market share, not only in the USA, but the rest of the world. Fiat was influential in the creation of the new Dodge Dart, and decided to field in the Alfa Romeo Giulietta as the donor in creating the most exciting compact car to be released by Dodge.

Dodge wanted more interior space, as Americans want midsize comfort in a small car. The wheelbase of the Alfa Romeo Giulietta received minor engineering and design modifications. The wheelbase was stretched and the four wheels were pushed farther out the corners to maximize the feeling of interior space and comfort.

The result is a car that has more passenger space than the Toyota Corolla and the Chevrolet Cruze, while remaining compact enough in terms of exterior size. The Dodge Dart also has a larger and more capacious trunk than the Ford Focus and the Honda Civic, hence making it more practical in terms of carrying cargo.

The Dart also benefits from European styling cues that further emphasize the dynamic nature of the car. Dodge wanted a sporty compact car that behaves like a European, but with a design that is both youthful and energetic at the same time. The Dart sits lower on the ground while the dynamic side profile gives it a wide stance when viewed from the front. The simple, flowing lines continue to the rear, showing off an attractive rear end adorned with bright LED tail lights.

You have 3 engines to choose from. First is the 160hp 2.0-liter Tigershark engine, which produces more power than the Chevrolet Cruze, Mazda 3, and Hyundai Elantra in base form. Next up the price range is the turbocharged and intercooled 1.4-liter MultiAir engine that develops 160hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. Last but not the least is the 2.4-liter 184hp MultiAir Tigershark engine. All engines can be ordered with the 6-speed manual transmission, or the smooth 6-speed automatic.

The Dodge Dart will be available at the nearest Dodge showroom starting at around $16,000. Considering that the Dart is also equipped with TFT interchangeable instrument clusters and the biggest touch screen in the business, the Dart presents great value as well.
