1.4L MultiAir I-4 Turbo: Allows drivers to take command of up to 160 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque, all while earning an enviable 8.5 L/100 km in the city and 5.8 on the highway.
2.4L Tigershark™ MultiAir I-4: The 2.4L Tigershark boosts your output to 184 horsepower and 174 lb-ft of torque, but it still earns up to 10.1 L/100 km in the city and 6.8 on the highway.
The new Dart spent over 600 hours undergoing wind tunnel testing to in order to refine its superb aerodynamic performance. Underbody treatments and an innovative active grille shutter system mean that you can reduce drag by up to 7 percent, so performance is impressive regardless of your chosen engine.
The 2016 Dodge Dart benefits from space and comfort in the cabin to complement its horsepower and torque beneath the hood. Double-stitched surfaces highlight the Dart’s intuitive design, and there’s a roomy total interior passenger volume of 2,752 L (97.2 cu ft), so even six-footers can stretch out comfortable in the rear seats.
