The Dodge Dart is an all new design for the 2013 model year. It averages 25 miles per gallon City / 36 Highway.
Most reviewers liked the car’s customizable interior, crisp handling and roomy cabin.
The Dart has three available engine options that are standard with a six-speed manual transmission, and an automatic is optional with any of the engines.
Reviewers are divided on the base 2.0-liter engine’s performance, with some saying it isn’t very fast from a stop, and most others saying it will be fine for shoppers who don’t need a fast sedan. The next step up model is a turbocharged 1.4-liter engine that drivers say gives the Dart stronger takeoffs. At up to 27/39 mpg city/highway, it is the most fuel-efficient engine choice.
Ten airbags are included in the Dart, including knee airbags for the driver and front passenger, which is a lot for the class.
Nearly 50 Darts are available now at Melloy Dodge, with special pricing in February. Starting MSRP on the Dart is just $15,995.
