2013 Dodge Dart Aims Straight and Scores Full Points

Looks like the Dodge Dart has been turning some heads at the North American International Auto Show. The small sedan was voted “Most Significant Vehicle” in the show by AutoWeek!

What gave the Dart this prestigious acknowledgement? Could be the starting manufacturer’s retail price of under $16,000. Or perhaps the class-leading safety features including an unsurpassed 10 air bags and “clever functionality”. Or maybe it’s the great power options, where you can choose from a new 16-valve 2.0L (160 hp) Tigershark, a 16-valve 1.4L (160 hp & 184 lb-ft torque) MultiAir Intercooled Turbo, and a new 16-valve 2.4L (184 hp) Tigershark MultiAir® four-cylinder engine. Then there’s the impressive fuel efficiency behind the attractive, bold, body of the Dart. Whichever the case, all we know is that we are excited to see the Darts on the roads!

“We’re very proud of this award and think the editors at AutoWeek have hit the bullseye by naming the Dart ‘Most Significant Vehicle,’ at the North American International Auto show,” said Reid Bigland, President and CEO—Dodge Brand. “With the compact car segment comprising 15 percent of U.S. new car sales and close to 25 percent of new car sales in Canada, we hope many people in both countries looking for a fuel-efficient, powerful, fun-to-drive car loaded with all the latest technology and safety features soon find it a significant part of their lives, too.”
