As Fiat Chrysler shifts its manufacturing top priorities away from autos and toward more profitable SUVs and also trucks, Chief Executive Officer Sergio Marchionne is reportedly trying to find a companion to establish future ages of this particular sleek sedan. That's perhaps for the very best. Despite a measurements advantage (that measures in as a mid-size automobile by federal government criteria), the Dart is uncompetitive against today's remarkable area of like-priced treaties, as well as that has actually accomplished little sales success considering that showing up in 2012.

 Just what's New: Earlier this year, 2016 Dodge Dart simplified the Dart's lineup from 5 trim levels down to three. The range right now consists of SXT Sporting activity, Turbo, and also GT Sport trims, each powered by a different motor.

In spite of far fewer options in general, purchasers can easily still go for numerous appeal teams, including Asphalt packages right for the SXT Sport and also GT Sport that feature a lot more hostile physical body covering as well as black slick right for the steering wheels and also grille. Right for this testimonial, we drove both a Dart Turbo along with the transmission and also a completely filled Dart GT Sport with the Asphalt bundle and also a transmission.

What We Like: When equipped with the optional appearance packages, the Dart possesses its personal distinguishing design and can easily also be taken into consideration sporty-looking. Its own qualified body, which resides on the sportier end from its own portion, backs up this opinion. Dealing with is actually well regulated, with perfectly heavy guiding and a firm trip that remains comprised in the edges. The optional 2.4-liter and 1.4-liter motors additionally feature amazingly hostile exhaust details that reinforce the Dart's slightly edgy ambiance. The Dart's extra 8.4-inch Uconnect infomercial system, as in most Chrysler products, is actually crystal clear as well as user-friendly to use.

What We Don't Like: In virtually every measurable method, the 2016 Dodge Dart has actually been actually exceeded by a lot of its own latest competitors. That is actually higher several various other compact cars and is one of the heaviest vehicles in its own class, and also many Dart styles just acquire Environmental Protection Agency blended fuel-economy ratings in between 26 and 29 mpg (several rivals obtain Thirty Three to 35 mpg in the very same examination). But, regardless of its own exterior footprint, the Dart possesses a lot less rear legroom and boot space than the Honda Civic. The Dodge additionally presents its own grow older along with its middling modern technology offerings. The Dart options checklist carries out certainly not include Apple CarPlay or Android Vehicle smart device connectivity or even active-safety functions including forward-collision warning and lane-departure alert.

None of the Dart's three powertrains is actually particularly fine-tuned. That aggressive motor details our company mentioned earlier can end up being grating after a while, as well as the transmission usually executes extreme, sudden work schedules. Velocity is less than excellent, with our latest exam of a Dart along with the top-dog 2.4-liter engine recording a zero-to-60-mph time from 8.2 seconds; the Chevrolet Cruze, Mazda 3, and also Honda Civic are all quicker.
