The 2013 Dodge Dart equipped with a six-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission mated to the 1.4-liter turbocharged powerplant has been rated by the EPA at 27-mpg city, 37-mpg highway.

While that may be disappointing that the automatic gets worse fuel economy than the comparable manual’s 27-mpg city, 39-mpg highway, it is a sign that the DCT-equipped Dart should be more focused on performance than fuel economy. The fuel economy is better than the 2.0-liter which is rated at 25-mpg city, 36-mpg highway for the manual and 24-mpg city, 34-mpg highway for the conventional automatic.

As for pricing, the 1.4-liter turbocharged engine is a $1,300 premium to the price of the standard Dart, while the standard or dual-clutch automatic will beg another $1,100.
