2015 DODGE DART
The 2015 Dodge Dart creates a good first impression thanks to its attractive bodywork and spacious interior. When you get to know the car, it becomes evident that it falls short of its competitors in essential areas. It’s up to you to decide whether or not this Dodge is the right vehicle for you based on your priorities. The Dart is a delightful friend in many ways. Its outside sheet metal is eye-catching, while the inside is comfortable and visually appealing. Uconnect’s touchscreen infotainment interface is sleek and contemporary, and its user-friendly design and broad capabilities set it apart from the rest of the pack. The Dart’s handling and safety ratings are top-notch, even in the non-GT trim levels.
The 2015 DODGE DART is offered in 5 trim levels:
Performance and Fuel Economy
The 2015 Dart boasts a sporty appearance, but none available engines can deliver on that promise. You can pick between economy and power, but not both. However, the ride and handling make up for some of the engine’s shortcomings. There’s no denying that Chrysler would have been better served by focusing on a single engine and a single gearbox rather than trying to be everything to everyone. As a result, the whole driving experience is hampered by the Dart’s shaky powertrains. A compromise is inevitable, regardless of how one looks at it.
The base 160-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder is just too underpowered to propel this hefty small vehicle. At 3,300 pounds, it’s heavier than many of its competitors, so it can’t produce enough torque to keep up with them. The 2015 Dodge Dart’s 2.0-liter engine is much slower than most rivals when accelerating from a stoplight or merging into fast-flowing highway traffic from uphill ramps. The standard 2.0-liter model achieves 25/36 mpg with manual transmission, while the automatic version achieves 24/34 mpg. There are two ways to get better fuel economy: the manual transmission and the dual-clutch automatic transmission. The manual transmission provides 28/41 mpg with the manual transmission and 28/40 mpg with the dual-clutch automatic. 22/35mpg in manual mode and 23/35mpg in six-speed automatic mode.

Design, Comfort, and Quality
Although the 2015 Dodge Dart looks like every other small car, this is a good thing. But it takes after its Dodge siblings, giving it some personality in what might otherwise be a dull sector. Many aspects of the Dart’s design harken back to Neon’s heyday. Proportionally, it’s the same as the Neon—a wide stance and low cowl. The broad stance, low fender tops, and long flowing roofline make it seem bigger and closer to the ground, even if the cowl isn’t lower than other vehicles.
As compared to the Chevy Cruze or Ford Focus car, it is neither as boxy nor as slab-sided in its design. Like the Charger’s 2015 redesign, Rearward looks more robust and more like the Dart than before. Optional LED lighting is available in a full-width taillight cluster (152 diodes in all). Although the apron has two 3-inch oval finishers, the exhaust emerges only via a single exhaust pipe on more basic compacts.
Dodge Dart SE offers a USB/iPod-compatible radio but no Bluetooth or steering-wheel audio controls, including a $775 convenience package. Even in a little vehicle, an optional 8.4-inch touchscreen is stunning. In addition to big, easy-to-read buttons on the screen, the phone has tactile controls for the most frequently used features. Dodge integrates the controls into an onboard display that appears as soon as the engine is turned on if you choose heated seats or a heated steering wheel. With a decent-sized center console, a cubby in front of the shifter, deep recesses in the glove box and door pockets, and a concealed compartment in the passenger seat, the cabin storage is impressive.
When consumers purchase a 2015 DODGE DART, they get a 2015 Dodge owner’s manual containing all the required information for future maintenance, vehicle operation, and features.
