The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
Remember the Neon? The 2014 Dodge Dart brings back some of its personality, but in a decidedly better package. The 2014 Chevy Cruze is comfortable and practical--and now it offers a diesel engine that can return 40 mpg in real-world use.
