The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
Remember the Neon? The 2014 Dodge Dart brings back some of its personality, but in a decidedly better package. Even without considering the top-performance ST, the 2014 Ford Focus is one of the best-driving small cars on the market--with the impression of being an accessible premium car, not a spruced-up econobox.
