Dodge has announced its all-new 2013 Dodge Dart Aero as its most fuel-efficient Dart model delivering up to 41-mpg with a starting price of $19,295.

Powered by the same 1.4-liter MultiAir intercooled turbocharged engine found in Fiat models, the Dodge Dart Aero has 160-hp and 184 lb-ft of torque while delivering up to 41-mpg on the highway. To help achieve that fuel efficiency, the American automaker engineered several aerodynamic enhancements for the Aero, including lightweight aluminum chassis components, active grille shutters, underbody aero kit, a lowered profile, and low-rolling resistance tires.

The 41-mpg highway rating is with the six-speed manual transmission, while the six-speed Dual Dry Clutch Transmission (DDCT) achieves 40-mpg on the highway.

“The all-new Dodge Dart is a groundbreaking vehicle, offering features and benefits never before offered in a compact car,” said Reid Bigland, President and CEO of Dodge Brand. “The new Dart Aero builds on these attributes by combining a remarkable 41mpg with interior room of a mid-size car and class-leading technology, style and safety, for only $19,295.”
