Automotive Editor - March 3, 2014

Now in its second year of production, the revived Dodge Dart continues to win buyers over with a unique combination of value, safety features and style. With an all-new Italian bloodline, borrowing a platform from the Alfa Romeo Giulietta, the Dart is a huge improvement over the Dodge Caliber it replaced.

The Dart offers a variety of engine choices and can achieve fuel economy of up to 41 mpg.

What's New for 2014

With over 100,000 possible combination, the 2013 Dart overwhelmed buyers with choice. For 2014, Dodge has taken features customers ordered the most and bundled them so they’re easier to order and deliver an even greater value. Dodge is also expanding the use of the 2.4-liter Tigershark engine in the Dart.

Choosing Your Dodge Dart

The Dart is available in five models:

The entry level Dart starts at a very reasonable $15,995 and is powered by the 2-liter Tigershark I-4 engine producing 160 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque. It's mated to a six-speed manual or optional six-speed automatic transmission. That low price includes few features, however—to get basic amenities like air conditioning and cruise control, you'll need to upgrade to the SE Convenience Group.

CarsDirect Tip

Even with its simplified lineup, the European-inspired Dart offers a dizzying level of personalization. We recommend going straight for the top-tier GT or Limited, which are as value-packed as cars get in 2014.
