2013 Dodge Dart Named 2013 Earth, Wind & Power Car of the Year

Earth, Wind & Power Awards - Most Earth Friendly Car of the Year

2013 Dodge Dart

Road Test Review by Bob Plunkett

In the hills of Texas near the Austin suburb of Dripping Springs, we're taking Mt. Gaynor Road to push the throttle on a new made-in-America compact sedan for the Dodge brand whose structure, suspension and steering mechanisms come from Italy's Alfa Romeo Giulietta hatchback through Dodge's Italian corporate parent, Fiat.

Badged with a vintage nameplate of Dodge's entry-level vehicle produced from 1960 through 1976, a Dodge Dart of 2013 scoots down the road with strong torque flowing from an optional turbo-charged four-cylinder engine that's also shared with the Alfa.

Dart's exterior design features smooth lines flowing over a wedge-shaped body with the canted front hood and raked windshield tipping to the extreme to enhance aerodynamic efficiency. To continue the review, click here.
