Changes for the 2016 Dodge Dart compact sedan are mostly cosmetic. The SXT trim offers a new Sport Appearance Package, while the entry SE trim gets a sporty Rallye Appearance Group option. Hyper Black 18-inch wheels are now standard on the GT, which can now be equipped with the Blacktop Package.
This year, the 2.4-liter Tigershark 4-cylinder engine is available in SXT, Limited and GT models as a Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle. Additionally, the Convenience Group on SE models gets a $620 price cut, and Uconnect is updated for compatibility with android phones.
Introduced in the late-arriving 2013 Dart GT, the 184-horsepower/2.4-liter "Tigershark" engine also becomes standard in the 2014 SXT and Limited models. Redesigned front bucket seats offer more comfort, and all but the base Dart SE boast additional standard features. Dart option packages also have been reshuffled to better reflect customer preferences.
About Dodge Dart
Dodge's 2016 Dart compact sedan brings European driving character to a highly stylized American 4-door loaded with features. With its Alfa Romeo roots, the Dart is easily the equal of such fun-to-drive rivals as the Mazda3 and Ford Focus. Although its rear seat is not as roomy as in some larger compacts (think Honda Civic), the Dart is still a competent compact. With three engine options, the Dart offers more choice than the Hyundai Elantra, Toyota Corolla or Nissan Sentra, and thanks to numerous personalization options, it's easy to build a Dart that stands apart from these competitors. Be it the luxurious Limited, Sporty GT or miserly Aero, the Dart offers something for everyone in a package that is fuel-efficient, safe and fun.
