2013 Dodge Dart
The 2013 Dodge Dart was a surprise, but a good surprise. Before reviewing the Dart, we knew the specs, but we didn't know how they would play out in an actual vehicle. Stepping in to Dodge's newest model you see that all of the design elements work together really nicely. The model we enjoyed had had a plethora of tech features to rival any new car on the market. Plus, with shared Alfa Romeo DNA, the Dart has a long history of ingenuity to build upon. Therefore, if you are in the market for an upscale compact automobile we unhesitatingly recommend the all-new 2013 Dodge Dart.

2013 Dodge Dart Quailty Testing
Dodge Spends Quality Time Developing First Vehicle of Italian-American Partnership
2013 Dodge Dart gets earlier start on new quality processes previously introduced with award-winning Dodge Durango
Dart expands on performance quality attributes of its Italian cousin, Alfa Romeo Giulietta
Dodge tested the Dart for more than 8.5 million miles
Belvidere (Ill.)Assembly Plant adds $20 million in new facilities and equipment to enhance quality
April 2, 2012 , Belvidere, Ill. - As the first vehicle to evolve from Chrysler Group's alliance with Fiat, the Dodge Dart builds off Alfa Romeo's performance virtues and Dodge's increasingly zealous attention to quality.
"This is a crucial vehicle launch for the company as we re-enter the compact sedan market, and everyone is committed to launching a high-quality product," said Doug Betts, Senior Vice President -- Quality, Chrysler Group LLC. "We've invested $20 million in new quality tools and processes at the Belvidere Assembly Plant to achieve the strict quality targets we set for Dodge Dart."
"We learned a lot as we launched 16 updated vehicles and introduced many new quality processes for the 2011 model year," Betts said. "We're applying the lessons from all the 2011 launches to the Dodge Dart's development right at the beginning of the program."
For example, the Jefferson North Assembly Plant (JNAP) in Detroit, which builds the Dodge Durango and Jeep® Grand Cherokee, was the first Chrysler Group assembly plant to install a dedicated Metrology Center to house state-of-the-art quality tools. JNAP's Metrology Center started operations just prior to Job 1 and helped establish a new standard for fit-and-finish for Dodge vehicles, and propel the all-new Dodge Durango to the top of influential quality surveys in its launch year.
However, the Metrology Center at the Belvidere (Ill.) Assembly Plant got an earlier start and provided valuable feedback to suppliers on pre-production components before the first Dart prototype was built. The Metrology Center allows engineers to find the sources of build variation -- even when components appear perfect to the naked eye -- and resolve any fit and finish issues before customer vehicles are built.
Dodge expands, literally, on the virtues of its Italian cousin
While the Dodge Dart is an all-new vehicle, its underpinnings evolved from the Alfa Romeo Giulietta, an upscale Italian hatchback known in its home market for dynamic, road-gripping performance.
For the Dart's early development work before prototypes were built, Dodge engineers literally cut a Giulietta in half, widened it and welded the body to match Dart's dimensions to create several engineering mule vehicles for testing. The Giulietta mules disguised the Dart's hardware and helped the engineering teams test the durability of suspension components and evaluate vehicle dynamics and noise, vibration and harshness (NVH).
"We're starting with a great architecture that helps us achieve our strict performance quality standards that will make the Dart very competitive in the North America compact sedan segment," Betts said.
As Chrysler Group defines it, performance quality measures how well a vehicle matches customer priorities and stacks up against its competition. Criteria such as acceleration, braking, handling, seat comfort, quietness, storage space and fuel economy are among the hundreds of attributes Dodge engineers compare versus competitive cars.
Refinement you can see, touch and hear
Knowing that many car buyers make judgments about a vehicle's quality the first time they see it, the company's Perceived Quality (PQ) team set the bar high so that the Dart would fare well under the scrutiny of the most discerning car shoppers.
The PQ team works with designers, engineers and suppliers to enhance the fit-and-finish, surface quality, material options and even the sound quality of moveable parts like doors and storage bins. The Dart is the first Chrysler Group vehicle program that used PQ best practices from the start of development.
Although the Dart will compete in the heart of the compact sedan segment, the PQ team benchmarked more expensive European sedans with the goal that the Dart will look and feel comparable to an entry luxury sedan under close inspection.
