The newest 2016 Dodge Dart comes with a look which is much more established and gains some substantial elements that make it favorable compared to some other vehicles in the class. What has been done here with the outside design was to base the look of the Dart to the Neon vehicle, which is actually a spending thing as it added some much needed elements that were perhaps missing.

It has a much wider stance now and also a low cowl, which was directly characterized in the Neon car. There is also something borrowed from the Charger car to finish off the looks of the Dart and the combination of which makes a perfect example of fine craftsmanship from the makers of Dodge. It is more than a perfect look for an affordable car like this one and it aims to make it big this year.

Inside the car, the 2016 Dodge Dart takes a much sportier direction to its design. It aims to combine the design of the newest dashboard with all the added elements to make a perfect combination. The base version has a standard and appropriate setup, while the higher trims make it with a 8.4-inch display for navigation, climate control and audio controls matted in the instrument panel. In the instrument cluster there is also a smaller screen added which is neatly tucked away between the gauges and other gadgets which provides you with all the necessary info about the car.

The car can also boast with some insanely high comfort settings inside which are additionally supported with a spacious interior. We can even say that it is a perfect mid-sized car with the added dimensions on the inside. Both the front and back seats are more than comfortable although not being as low as you might expect them to be judging by the low beltline of the car. There are some hard plastic elements added to the interior, much more than we would like to see but it is done in a copious way so there are more fine touch materials and elements around the inside than you may think at first. This is perhaps the perfect layout and a perfect setup for a low priced car like this one.

The base engine setup for the 2016 Dodge Dart consists of a 160-horsepower 2.0-liter four combined with a  six-speed automatic  transmission. This setup may be a bit sluggish in fact as the weight can cause it some problems when performing. If the vehicle was a bit lighter than it may perform better, but for now the reality is like this. So perhaps it is better to opt for the turbocharged 160-hp 1.4-liter engine which can provide better acceleration and more torque which will eventually result in a much more responsive ride. This engine is standard for the Aero models and comes with either a six-speed manual or a dual-clutch automatic and a max EPA rating of 41 mpg highway. The final engine option, which comes standard for the Limited, SXT and GT models is the 184-hp 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine.
