2013 Dodge Dart First Drive Preview

The Dodge Dart is the first product of the merger between Chrysler Group and Fiat. It falls into the compact sedan category, but looks pretty sleek. Chyrsler hasn't had a compact sedan since the demise of the Neon in 2005. The Caliber that replaced the Neon was intended to be, as a sign of the times, more of a micro-crossover, but didn't get enough traffic to fill an online backup
The new Dodge Dart will start to arrive in showrooms by the end of June, with more availability in July and later. The Dart may be the most important vehicle to Chrysler since the LH cars that revitalized it twenty years ago. With stalwarts like the Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla, and tough competitors like the Volkswagen Jetta, Ford Focus, Hyundai Elantra, Kia Forte, and Mazda3 for competition, the Dart will need to be very good indeed in order to make an impression. full preview with pics
