However, the features in the Dart are impressive and should be a huge hit with tech savvy drivers. The 8.4-inch Uconnect touch screen is quick and intuitive, setting a benchmark not just in the compact segment but the whole automotive industry. There’s also an available nine-speaker Alpine sound-system that sounds good and isn’t outrageously expensive at $495.
Add the heated leather seats and funky ambient lighting and the Dart’s $21,990 starting price starts to seem reasonable for the people it’s aimed at.
Though the driving dynamics of the GT model don’t stand out, buyers will surely factor in the technology and convenience features available in the Dodge at this price, making it a stand out in the extremely competitive crowd of compacts.
