2013 Dodge Dart: Bringing Up the Rear

June 5, 2013

2013 Dodge Dart

The compact car segment is one that's now chock full of good picks. In addition to the segment fave Honda Civic you have well-regarded choices such as the Ford Focus, Hyundai Elantra and Mazda 3.

As such, if you're a brand new player trying to get in the game it's not easy. The year-to-date sales numbers (through April) for compacts have the Dodge Dart at the back of the pack. Here's the low-down...

Toyota Corolla 103,317
Honda Civic 96,709
Ford Focus 84,455
Chevrolet Cruze 77,763
Nissan Sentra 43,736
Mazda 3 35,037
Dodge Dart 31,064

For the most part, I like our Dart. Specifically, I give props to the handsome styling, peppy turbocharged engine, roomy cabin and user-friendly infotainment system.
