2013 Dodge DartEnlarge Photo
Overall Rating: 8.2
Bottom Line: Remember the Neon? The 2013 Dodge Dart brings some of the same passion back to Chrysler's compact-car lineup, with a 41-mpg version yet to come.
Chrysler has been largely sitting out the small-car game in recent years, but that's changed this year with the introduction of the 2013 Dodge Dart. The Dart manages to channel some of the testosterone-tinged design cues of the larger Dodge Charger while nodding to the former Neon. From what we've seen so far, the new Dart is sporty and distinctive inside and out, with a roomy, comfortable cabin, although gas mileage and overall refinement are only average for the class.
