First unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show in January, the 2013 Dodge Dart compact sedan will go on sale this June at dealerships nationwide. Besides compelling good looks, the all-new five-passenger compact sedan boasts something else to entice buyers: an attractively low starting price of $15,995.
Of course, that’s not the out-the-door price, even if you don’t tack on any options or consider any available incentives (if there are any). With $795 destination charge, your total outlay would be $16,790 for the 2013 Dart SE.

What’s included in the base model? Power comes from a 148-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine mated to a six-speed manual or available six-speed automatic transmission. Ten airbags, four-wheel anti-lock brakes (ABS), brake assist, electronic stability control, and traction control are also standard.
Not a bad price for what you get, especially in the hotly competitive compact sedan market.

The 2013 Dart comes in four other models: SXT, Rallye, Limited and R/T. Pricing for those models begins at $17,995, $18,995, $19,995 and $22,495, respectively. Remember to include the $795 destination charge. Any way you look at it, the new Dart family has a lot to offer consumers looking for a new compact sedan priced from just under $17,000 to a little over $23,000.
One final note is that the Dart R/T won’t be available until the third quarter.
