2013 Dodge Dart: Impressions Nine Months Later
December 06, 2013
It's been about nine months since I've driven our 2013 Dodge Dart. After having not been in it for so long, it was interesting to get reacquainted with Dodge's compact car and see if any of my impressions would be different.
Certainly the car's styling continues to be one of its top attributes. Some cars look luster with familiarity. But looking sharp and purposeful without being overdone, I think the Dart's appearance will have some legs for years to come.
One other thing that struck me was how well the touchscreen electronics interface works. Here, I think I had just forgotten a little. But having driven a lot of other cars in the intervening months with less-than-stellar touchscreens, the Dart's really stood out to me. It's quick to respond, easy to use and arguably the best interface you'll find in this class.
