The Dodge Dart goes up against some proven performers like the Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla, Ford Focus, Chevrolet Cruze, Mazda3, and Volkswagen Jetta. Its stiffest competitor is the Hyundai Elantra, a car that is arguably the best value in the compact class today.
With one of the quietest engine-transmission combinations in a compact car, sprightly acceleration, tuned suspension, three engines, three transmissions, and multiple exterior and interior choices, the the 2013 Dodge dart is serving notice that it plans to displace the current king of the hill!
Fiat, Chrysler Group and the Dodge division have done an excellent job developing a competitive compact car. Don’t be surprised if this one gets the nod in the North American and Canadian Car of the Year run off.
