  • 2013 Dodge Dart Limited, road test, Catskill Mountains, NY, April 2013

    The 2013 Dodge Dart has gotten off to a slow start in the market, but it's a vitally important car for Chrysler. The first vehicle based on shared underpinnings from its parent Fiat, the Dart has to show Chrysler can build competitive cars--and, even more important, top-quality small cars that compete in the heart of the market: the compact four-door sedan segment. Based on a weekend test drive, the first Dart we'd driven since the launch event last summer, we'd say that the Dart is a huge step up from the unloved Dodge Caliber hatchback it replaced. But it's not yet among the best in the...

    The 2013 Dodge Dart is set to be one of 2012's most significant new releases.

    Why The 2013 Dodge Dart Sedan HAS To Get 40 MPG Highway

    It's a magic number, 40 mpg, a nice big round figure to tout in big print every time gasoline prices go up.
