Dodge Dart 2016
Dodge's first decent small car in decades debuted for 2013, but still fell short in the execution. The 1.4-liter turbo has enough power but sounds thrashy, and the optional automated manual transmission is unrefined and stumbles at low speeds. The base 2.0-liter has a better six-speed automatic transmission, but it still feels underpowered. A 2.4-liter four-cylinder became the primary engine choice starting in 2014. It has more power, but falls short in fuel economy. Handling is taut and agile, and the ride is composed. Inside, the cabin is roomy up front but the rear seat is tight, and the front seats aren't very comfortable. The Uconnect touchscreen infotainment system is one of the best on the market.
