Used Dodge Darts
The Dodge Dart is fun to drive and has user-friendly tech features. It has solid handling, powerful available engines, and good safety scores.
Depending on the year, the Dodge Dart has three engines to choose from: a 2.0-liter four-cylinder, a turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder, and a 2.4-liter four-cylinder. The base 2.0-liter engine is the economy engine. The other two available engines are for those that need a little more punch, especially noticeable on the freeway. A six-speed manual transmission is standard and a six-speed automatic is available on most models. With the base engine and manual transmission, the Dart gets up to 25 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway. Models with the automatic transmission get slightly lower fuel economy. The Aero is the most fuel-efficient Dart model, getting up to 28 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway. The Dart is nimble for a compact car, and its ride is smooth.
The Dart’s cabin materials are high quality, with most contact points soft to the touch. Most adults will have plenty of room in the front seats. Rear-seat space is sufficient for two adults. For installing child safety seats, the Dart has two full sets of LATCH connectors on the outboard rear seats and an additional upper tether on the middle rear seat.
