    2016 Dodge Dart OVERVIEW

    The Dodge Dart offers a lot of choice, technology and convenience to compact sedan shoppers. With a wide range of equipment and engines, as well as style and sporty appeal, it aims to appeal to the heart of the compact market -- with an extra sense of emotion.

    What's New for 2016

    The Dart gets some new wheels and colors, while a Sport Appearance Hood is an option on GT and SXT models. Last year's Blacktop Package is now an option on GTs, as well as the SXT.

    Choosing Your Dodge Dart

    The Dart comes only as a four-door sedan, but with a healthy selection of engines and trims.

    • Base SE models come with a 2-liter four-cylinder engine with 160 horsepower.
    • SXT, GT and Limited models get a more robust 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine with 184 horsepower.
    • The efficiency-minded Aero gets a 1.4-liter turbo four-cylinder engine with 160 horsepower and the promise of up to 41 mpg, thanks to various design and tuning tweaks.

    All but the Limited are available with a manual transmission, while there's also a six-speed automatic for all but the Aero, which uses a six-speed dual-clutch transmission.


    The base Dart comes with the 2-liter four-cylinder, power windows, a folding rear seat and a four-speaker sound system with a CD/MP3 player. The Convenience Group adds air conditioning, keyless entry, cruise control, power locks and mirrors, Bluetooth phone and audio, and active grille shutters and underbody trim for better aerodynamics.


    The midrange model adds the 2.4-liter engine and most of the contents of the Convenience Group, plus aluminum wheels, a six-speaker audio system, automatic headlights, and an upgraded interior with plusher upholstery and a few extra conveniences. The Uconnect Touchscreen Group gets you an upgraded instrument panel with an infotainment touchscreen, satellite radio and backup camera. The Sun and Sound Group adds all that plus a sunroof and a nine-speaker Alpine audio system. The Cold Weather Group comes with remote start and heated front seats and mirrors. The Rallye Group comes with 17-inch black aluminum wheels, a firmer suspension and sportier trim throughout. Finally, the Blacktop package equips the Dart with upgraded tires on 18-inch black wheels and specific black trim.


    The special fuel efficiency model gets the 1.4-liter turbocharged engine, low-rolling-resistance 16-inch tires, and standard grille shutters and underbody aerodynamic enhancements. The large UConnect touchscreen, satellite radio and backup camera are also included over the SXT.


    The sporty GT model adds heated front seats, remote start, along with a sport-tuned suspension, leather seating with driver power, 18-inch wheels, keyless ignition and dual-zone automatic climate control.


    The plusher Limited comes standard with automatic transmission, plus unique suspension tuning, remote start, a sunroof, chrome exterior trim, upgraded leather and a navigation system with real-time traffic data.

    CarsDirect Tip

    Generous incentives mitigate some of the pricier trim levels on the Dart. SXT and GT are good bets with the 2.4-liter engine in place of the overwhelmed 2.0 and lumpy turbo.
