The Chrysler Group has a brand-new compact car that brings back a classic nameplate from the '70s. The 2013 Dodge Dart is the first Chrysler product based on Fiat architecture, but boasts Dodge styling cues.
Replacing the Dodge Caliber hatchback, the new Dodge Dart sedan will offer three engine choices: a turbo 1.4L MultiAir four-cylinder (160 hp), a 2.0L four (160 hp) and a 2.4L four (184 hp). Six-speed manual, automatic and dual-clutch transmissions will all be available as well.
The 2013 Dodge Dart should be on sale this summer.
The Nissan LEAF is the most popular electric car on the market right now. Some will argue that this type of vehicle is not suited for our rough Canadian winters, especially with a standard range of 160 kilometres that melts like snow under the sun during the cold season. Let's be real: If you travel 20,000 kilometres annually, your daily average is less than 60 kilometres.
