Overview of the Dodge Dart

Learn about the Dodge Dart

Summary

The Dodge Dart was the American company’s entry into the competitive compact car scene in 2013. Since it only lasted four model years, leaving the market after 2016, the Dart is a relatively rare sight on the road. That has made it a bit of a second-hand bargain compared to other compact cars like the Honda Civic.

Three different engines power the Dart in its various trim levels. All are small four-cylinders, ensuring excellent fuel economy. Optional appearance packages offered original owners the ability to tailor the modest exterior design, while a large, user-friendly infotainment screen greets drivers inside.

Safety

Despite its size and price tag, the Dodge Dart comes with a large list of safety features across its four model years. Standard electronic stability and traction control systems (ESC and TC) work together to predict and minimize potential dangers. Every trim level features 10 airbags as standard. Also included across the range is a four-wheel anti-lock braking system (ABS), which helps keep your wheels from locking and skidding. It’s important to note, however, that all Darts are front-wheel drive only.

Interior

The Dodge Dart offers multiple colour themes, though each one is usually tied to a specific trim. Lower trim levels come with cloth seats in black or tan, while higher trims feature black or white Nappa leather. Those looking for a sportier touch should seek out the GT or SXT with Blacktop Package—both come with splashes of red to spice up the interior. Other optional upgrades for the Dodge Dart include:

  • Leather seating
  • Power-adjustable driver’s seat
  • Power sunroof
  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel with wheel-mounted buttons for audio and cruise control
  • Nine-speaker Alpine stereo

Technology

Base level Dodge Darts aren't exactly rich with tech features, coming with a four-speaker CD audio system with an auxiliary jack. But thankfully, most models on the market are higher trim levels, featuring Dodge’s 8.4-inch touchscreen. Many drivers praise this infotainment setup as one of the easiest to use. These models also feature a rear-facing camera and blind-spot monitoring system, making close-quarter manoeuvring a breeze.

Space

It might be a compact car, but the Dodge Dart is big enough for a family of five. In fact, it has so much interior and trunk space that it’s technically classified as mid-size. Despite that, the sloping roof-line does make getting into the rear seats a bit difficult. The 2703 mm wheelbase translates to plenty of legroom for front and rear passengers once inside. You’ll find plenty of storage space too, with a huge glove box and a trick storage box in the front passenger seat.

Comfort

Drivers and passengers alike appreciate the comfortable seats in the front and back. The Dodge Dart can carry a family in comfort, thanks to a smooth ride and clean-shifting automatic transmission. Those looking for a little more of a thrill can choose the manual transmission. All models boast excellent fuel consumption figures. Want the most mileage out of every drop of gas? Look for the 1.4 L turbo engine paired with the six-speed manual, capable of up to 5.8 L/100 km.
