Cool Compact Sedan

In short: A stylish and affordable small sedan.

Combining Alfa Romeo DNA with classic Dodge craftsmanship, the Dart is a quick and hip small sedan that lives up to its name. Featuring a gas-sipping turbocharged 4-cylinder, this compact car offers spirited performance while still earning up to 39 mpg on the highway. Our Redline 2-Coat Pearl Rallye edition tester came fitted with handsome black accents, 17-inch aluminum wheels and dual exhaust with eye-catching chrome tips.
