Dodge Dart
Starting Price: $16,495
Not since the Dodge Neon has Chrysler had much in the way of success in the small car arena, but the 4-door Dart seems to have done the trick. Dart offers a bit more power than some of the other compacts — its 2.4-liter Tigershark MultiAir2 4-cylinder engine is standard on the SXT, Limited and GT trims, putting out 184 horsepower and 174 lb-ft of torque for spritely performance. The high-efficiency 1.4-liter turbo — standard on the Dart Aero — produces 160 horsepower while boasting up to 41 mpg on the highway. With plenty of standard features and sporty styling that echoes the best of the Dodge lineup, Dart is certainly worthy of consideration.
