Carries over unchanged, but gains a simplified lineup

Introduced in 2012, the modern-day Dart revived the iconic nameplate Dodge used between 1960 and 1976 for a range of vehicles offered in two-door, four-door, and wagon configurations. At first a full-size car, the Dart was redesigned into a compact in 1963 and remained in that segment until it was discontinued in 1976. In 2012, the Dart returned as a compact sedan built on a slightly enlarged Fiat Compact platform dubbed Compact U.S. Wide. Designed as a fuel-efficient proposition for the compact market, the Dart wasn’t exactly popular among U.S. customers, selling less than 90,000 units a year between 2013 and 2015.

Recently, FCA announced that the Dart will be discontinued soon due to the company’s decision to redirect its resources toward building crossover vehicles. In March 2016, FCA seemed to reconsider its radical resolution and began to look for a partner that would continue to manufacture the Dart. While the fate of the compact sedan has yet to be decided officially, Dodge is simplifying the Dart lineup for the reminder of the 2016 model year. Previously available in five trims, the Dart has been reduced to only three models. In short, Dodge is now offering a trim level for each drivetrain, which makes more sense given the nameplate’s sluggish sales.

But, fewer models doesn’t mean a poor offer. The Dart still benefits from several customization options, including the Chrome, Rallye, and Black packages, as well as the extra goodies that can be purchased via Mopar. Let’s have a closer look at the 2016 Dart and find out what the new lineup has to offer.
