Dodge Dart Overview

Dodge's compact sedan was updated for 2014, but still falls short. This car does have some good points: Handling is taut and agile, and the ride is composed. Besides that, the front cabin is quite spacious and the optional Uconnect touch screen is one of the better infotainment systems. Updates included improvements to the interior and seats, but the rear remains cramped. The primary powertrain is now a 2.4-liter four-cylinder and smooth six-speed automatic. The 2.4 lacks refinement but is a better choice than the sluggish base 2.0-liter and thrashy optional 1.4-liter turbocharged four. First year reliability of the 2.0-liter has been well above average, the turbo four is below average and the 2.4's reliability is unknown.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
