2013 Dodge Dart Test Drive & Compact Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/dodge/dart/2013/ The 2013 Dodge Dart marks the
return of Chrysler to the compact car segment. The Dart first appeared back
in the 1960's and died off in 1976. But this nameplate was resurrected for
the 2013 model year. In fact this is Dodge's first compact 4-door sedan for
sale in the U.S. since the demise of the Neon in 2005. The all-new 2013
Dodge Dart is very stylish and modern with a very affordable $15,995 base
Detroit has once again become a player in the compact car segment with the
likes of the Chevrolet Cruze, Ford Focus, and now the Dodge Dart. From a
styling perspective the new 2013 Dodge Dart is very sleek with the
trade-mark crosshair grille and the swept headlights which make the car
very aerodynamic. The front end of the Dart really stands out from the
crowd of Honda Civics and Toyota Corollas. Out back the LED taillights are
directly derived from the Dodge Charger.
There are 3 Tigershark 4-cylinder 16-valve engine options offered on the
2013 Dodge Dart line. The base engine is a 2.0 liter that makes 160 horsepower and 148 lb-ft.
of torque getting 25 MPG in the city and 36 MPG on the highway. The 1.4
liter MultiAir turbo is familiar because
this motor is derived from FIAT. This turbocharged engine also makes 160 horsepower but with 184
lb-ft. of torque getting 27 MPG in the city and 39 MPG on the highway. The
top of the line engine is the 2.4 liter which makes 184 horsepower and 171 lb-ft. of
torque. You can get either a 6-speed automatic or manual transmission.
The FIAT influence does not stop at the engine. Instead the 2013 Dodge Dart
is based on the FWD compact wide US platform. Essentially this rides on an
enlarged Alfa Romeo Giulietta platform making this the most rigid compact
sedan in the segment. The interior of the new Dodge Dart offers a few
welcomed surprises. The Dart has an optional 8.4-inch screen that is one of
the best in the industry. It is huge, easy to read, and easy to control.
Something else you do not find in the compact car category is the 7-inch
tin-film customizable gauge cluster. This is a great feature for a vehicle
in this segment that is supposed to appeal to young people.
The bottom line on the 2013 Dodge Dart is that it is facing some really
tough competition with the likes of the Civic, Corolla, Elantra, and the
Forte. The question is: "Do you want to take a chance on something brand
new." The Dart has only been out a couple of months and there is not a lot
of data or feedback yet on it. The 2013 Dodge Dart is a very good
affordable car and should be on your list of vehicles to test drive when
shopping for a compact sedan.

2013 Dodge Dart GT Test Drive & Compact Car Video Review
When the 2013 Dodge Dart debuted, it missed the mark for many consumers due
to the peaky power band that stems from the 1.4 liter turbocharged engine. The Dodge Dart remedies that
with a 2.4 liter naturally aspirated 4-cylinder engine under the hood. The
Tiger Shark engine is only available in the GT model and produces 184 horsepower and 171
lb-ft. of torque.
The 2014 Dodge Dart GT features active air shutters and underbody
aerodynamics to improve fuel efficiency. Equipped with a manual
transmission you can expect 23 MPG in the city and 33 MPG on the highway.
Fuel economy slumps a bit with the automatic transmission at 21 MPG in the
city and 30 MPG on the highway.
The chassis was inherited from Alfa Romeo and the result is a nice ride.
The interior features deeply bolstered bucket seats. This tester was
equipped with the 28S Order Packing which includes: larger 18-inch wheels,
LED Taillights, Sport Suspension, and a host of color matched body parts.
The 8.4-inch touch screen display is standard but adding the Uconnect
system and upgraded audio will cost just under $1000.
If you are in the market for a compact sedan then you will definitely want
to drive the 2014 Dodge Dart GT.

Top 5 Slowest 0-60 MPH Cars @1 Mile above sea level
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) What's the slowest car from 0-60 MPH at 1 mile
above sea level? That's pretty straightforward question and one that we are
prepared to answer. In the first half of 2012 we've tested a lot of slow
cars from 0-60 MPH at altitude. As you may know less air also means less
power so our 0-60 MPH times are different from those at sea level. Also turbocharges and supercharges help to make
up for the power loss. So what Top 5 Slowest 0-60 MPH Cars @1 Mile Above
Sea level in 2012? Watch this video to find out.
