2013 Dodge Dart – A Small Car With A Variety Of Options
The Dodge Dart is Chrysler first successful venture to launching a small car in a sector that is overfull with competitors like the Toyota Corolla, Honda Civic, Ford Focus, Mazda 3, Kia Forte and Hyundai Elantra. There are two places where the Dodge Dart can thwart the competition, and that is in the looks department because it is sporty and rakish, and also has a huge rear to seat people comfortably.Chrysler’s auto designers have extensively remodelled the dashboard and equipped it with a sportier console in the basic models. In the upper end of the line-up you can have upgrade to 8.4inch center display screen with smaller screen fitted between the fuel and speed gauges in the instrument section.
Exterior Of The 2013 Dodge Dart And The Engine
The sporty styling is indicative that the Dart is a performance car, but this also depends on your choice of engine. You can either opt for the basic 160-horsepower 2.0-liter, which is somewhat sluggish when pulling into congested motorway lanes, or even negotiating acute inclines when carrying passengers. However, you can settle for the turbocharged 160-hp 1.4-liter engine, where you will obtain better acceleration, stronger rotation and a racier, intuitive drive. To achieve that you’ll have to keep your foot firmly on the accelerator to make it happen—which can be a bit dangerous if there is heavy traffic.
The 1.4-liter turbo Dart gives amazingly good fuel economy at 28 mpg in the town, 40 mpg on the freeway. The base 2.0-liter model hovers at a combined rating of 29 mpg in both the city and the motorways. Read more about its performance at Arrigoftpierce.com of S. Florida.
