5 Reasons the 2016 Dart Is the Quintessential Urban Car
Easy to Fit Into Tight Spaces
Whether you have to find on-street parking or you have an assigned spot in a garage, you know parking in the city is a challenge. Luckily, the compact size of the 2016 Dart makes it easy to fit into those tight parking spaces. Plus, if you have to deal with narrow streets or alleys, having a compact car means it’s easier to get around and you have less chance of dings or scrapes.
While the Dart can easily fit into those tight spots, that doesn’t mean the interior is cramped. In fact, with 97.2 cubic feet of interior space, the Dart is actually quite roomy on the inside. Even your taller passengers will enjoy a surprising amount of leg room in the back. If you’re hauling around gear rather than people, you’ll still find plenty of room in the Dart. The trunk offers 13.1 cubic feet of cargo space and if you’re packing in something that’s extra long, the 60/40 split-folding rear seats will effortlessly fold down to accommodate it.
Great Fuel Economy
You might be able to fit more in that large SUV, but you’ll pay for it when it comes time to fill up at the pump. However, each four-cylinder engine that comes on the Dart has dual variable valve timing (VVT) to help increase performance. As a result, the Dart SE gets an estimated 25 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway, while the Dart Aero is even better with an estimated 28 mpg in the city and 41 mpg on the highway.
Plus, you can get up to 541 miles on a full tank of gas. In the city, that means plenty of cruising around before you even have to think about stopping to fill up.
Same Superior Technology
You don’t have to purchase an SUV or sedan to enjoy the latest technology features. Many Dart models come standard with an instrument panel that shows important information such as tire pressure, fuel economy, and even navigation. You can also upgrade to an 8-inch touch-screen information center that comes with a USB port and satellite radio, as well as voice command, voice text reply, hands-free calling, and Bluetooth streaming with compatible smartphones.
Outstanding Safety and Protection
It all starts with a high-strength steel safety frame for excellent protection. From there, the Dart adds active front head restraints and 10 standard airbags. For even more protection, you can add extra features like rear cross path detection and blind spot monitoring.
From excellent fuel economy to ease of driving, when you’re looking for the ideal urban car, get behind the wheel of a Dodge Dart and see why it will suit your needs perfectly.
