The 2013 Dodge Dart features more technology and safety features plus these great additions:
•8.4-inch screen with backup camera
•Customizable 7-inch screen between gauges
•Heated steering wheel
•10 standard airbags
•LED head and tail lights
•Alpine 10-speaker Premium audio
•150 different accessories to make your vehicle stand out.

Our test drive in the Dodge Dart presented nice ride quality and responsive handling. The oval chrome exhaust pipes create a more European look and sound. The design is modern, wide, and confident with materials that show good fit and finish both inside and out. The upscale look and feel also offers great storage in creative and unique areas (under the passenger front seat cushion, large glove box, side pockets on center console, and door storage).

Competes with:
•Chevrolet Cruze
•Ford Focus
•Hyundai Elantra
•Honda Civic
•Toyota Corolla
•Nissan Sentra
•VW Jetta

•Tight handling
•Comfortable interior
•Big touch screen
•Nice sound system
•Slow pick-up from a stop on base engine
•Touchy brakes

The 2013 Dodge Dart offers mid-sized car roominess with compact car pricing; lots of style for the money, and surprisingly fun to drive. The more powerful turbo engine is the one to get.

Remember, when shopping for a new car, test drive as many vehicles as you can in the class you are looking in to make sure you find the car that is best for you.
