2013 Dodge Dart: These Sun Visors Have the Side Windows Covered
June 25, 2013
If you're tall like me you know that side window visor coverage is no small matter. Visors that fall short leave a huge gap for those that scoot the seat all the way back, and a lot of cars and trucks fall into this category.
Our 2014 Mazda CX-5 is one of them, but the 2013 Dodge Dart has it covered.
It's probably a combination of factors. The Dart is of course a sedan, and its compact size places the center door post farther forward than it might be in a longer, larger car; the front doors aren't terribly long. And the Dart has a sleekly sloped windshield, which shifts the top of the windshield rearward, bringing the visor pivot along with it. The combined result is a smaller gap for the visors to bridge. Beyond that the Dart is the widest compact out there, and its correspondingly wide interior allows longer visors to fit in the usual stored position, which gives us more to work with when folded to the side.
Whatever the case, there's no gap at all. Some of your other carmakers should be taking notes.
