The 2013 Dodge Dart is a front-wheel-drive small sedan based on an Italian hatchback; it starts with its basic structure, suspension and steering borrowed from the Alfa Romeo Giulietta sold in Europe.
With underpinnings sourced from the Alfa Romeo Giulietta, the 2013 Dodge Dart boasts the sort of lively, responsive handling you'd expect from something with an Italian birthright. The steering is well weighted, and the car does a nice job of driving about town, turns confidently while also offering the sort of comfortable ride that you might expect from a larger car.
The Dart is a tad wider than average for this class, which not only imparts more passenger space but also creates the feeling that you're driving something rather substantial. It really doesn't feel like a compact car; the Dart's bigger dimensions make it seem more sizeable and confident when cruising down the road.
The SXT is like the SE within the Value Group, but for 2013 it came equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels, upgraded cloth upholstery, a 60/40-split-folding rear seat, a sliding front armrest, an upgraded instrument panel and a six-speaker sound system. The SXT Rallye package added to that with fog-lamps, exclusive exterior and interior trim and a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls.
Every 2013 Dodge Dart comes standard with antilock disc brakes, traction and stability control, front and rear side airbags, side curtain airbags and front knee airbags. A rearview camera came as an option, as did blind-spot monitoring and cross-traffic alert systems.
Every 2013 Dodge Dart (except the GT) comes standard with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 160 hp and 148 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed manual transmission is standard and a six-speed automatic transmission was optional.
In government crash testing, the Dart earned a top five-star overall rating, with five stars for total frontal impact protection and five stars for total side-impact protection. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety similarly awarded the Dart a top score of "Good" in frontal-offset, side-impact and roof-strength tests. In brake testing, the Dart came to a stop from 60 mph in 118 feet, putting it among the best in the segment.
The Dodge Dart presents one of the nicest cabins in its class. Each subsequent trim level added even nicer elements - the Dart actually fully develops the ascending trim levels with such touches as extra padding on surfaces, dash stitching and flourishes of colorful trim.
The music hub features easy-to-navigate menus, big touch buttons and an accompanying knob that makes skimming through external device menus quick and easy.
