New 2014 Dodge Dart Trim Levels
2014 Dodge Dart Review
For Sale @ Unique Chrysler Burlington (located between Oakville & Hamilton)
The 2014 Dodge Dart is a European-derived compact sedan that breathes new life into the vintage Dart name. This year brings the 2.4-liter engine to all models as an option instead of being restricted to just the GT.
The mix of Fiat, Alfa Romeo and Dodge has given us a great little car that may be several nationalities, but is all business. The design, build and performance all lend themselves perfectly to a sprightly little compact car.
The design is definitely European, but still has a distinct North American influence. It is reminiscent of the Neon it replaces while also reminding us of the Charger on a smaller platform.
The angled front looks quite aggressive but has a friendly face to counter that masculinity. The sloped hood over the grills and angled headlights is almost Ford, but also distinctly not. The rounded sides end with a Charger-esque single light bar under the trunk spoiler to complete the look.
Inside, the 2014 Dodge Dart is roomier than you might expect for a compact. It feels more like a mid-size than a compact and has an enviable amount of driver and passenger room. Soft touch materials also help give the Dart a premium feel.
The driver's seat and front passenger seat are both adjustable and comfortable. Visibility is good all round, making driving and parking a breeze. All the controls are logically laid out and the center stack makes everything else easy to control. Opt for Uconnect Access for a great infotainment system that is one of the best on the market.
Under the hood is either a 1.4-liter, 2.0-liter or 2.4-liter engine. The 1.4-liter is a turbo four that uses Fiat's MultiAir to deliver 160 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. The 2.0-liter is good for 160 hp and 148 lb-ft of torque. The 2.4-liter MultiAir Tigershark produces 184 hp and 171 lb-ft of torque.
Each engine is capable and is connected to the front wheels by a six-speed manual or automatic transmission.
The 2014 Dodge Dart is available as SE, SXT, Aero, Limited and GT trims. The base SE offers CD audio, LED tail lights, cloth seats and the 2.0-liter engine. Upgrade to the Dart SXT for the 2.4-liter Tigershark engine, 17-inch alloys, power locks, keyless entry and an alarm.
The Dart Aero has the 1.4-liter engine and gas-saving features to improve gas mileage. The Limited offers the Uconnect infotainment system, reversing camera, LCD instrument cluster, power driver seat, auto lighting, active grill shutters and the option for a leather interior.
The range-topping GT adds leather interior, 18-inch alloys, heated steering wheels, climate control, sports suspension and electronic dampers.
The 2014 Dodge Dart is a great little car with a lot of life and energy. Check it out at Unique Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram today!
