While the Dodge line is known for its numerous powerful dragsters and sports cars generations, they decided to take a whole new approach with the 2017 Dodge Dart GT. The new Dart GT is the typical Dodge prepped automobile, only that this time round the engineers behind its semi-luxurious looking design decided to go with the compact sedan form factor. Which means that the car boasts a roomy four-door cabin, complete with cushioned seats and a modern driving cabin to match.

The exterior

From a design perspective, the 2017 Dodge Dart GT, like most of the other Dart iterations, is built for the average person who only needs a car for their day-to-day routines. e.g driving to the office, going for shopping and maybe that occasional vacation upcountry. However, this doesn’t mean that the car doesn’t look luxurious or deluxe, in fact, the minimalist, plain, chamfered, sheet metal finish oozes quiet elegance and balance. It definitely makes a strong first impression.

Further, in terms of the looks department, the 2017 Dodge Dart GT competes in the same league with the VW Passat, Subaru WRX, and the Ford Focus ST. All of which also share the same price point with the 2017 Dodge Dart GT.

Nonetheless, there have been circulating rumours that Chrysler is planning on releasing a sportier version of the 2017 Dodge Dart GT in the near future. If this holds water, then we could see the current minimalistic Dart receive notable upgrades such as a more elaborate bumper, maybe a hood scoop, a rear diffuser, and probably a large apron intake. But that remains to be seen.

Engine Performance

Lovers of Turbocharged engines are spoilt for choice when it comes to the 2017 Dodge Dart GT. Even better, the loud and aggressive engine comes with a four-wheel drive variant to complement the traditional rear-wheel style we have seen in previous iterations. This high-performance Dodge is beefed up with a fuel economy 2.4-liter Tigershark engine able to deliver a decent 260 horsepower of raw force. However, the acceleration might not be that powerful considering that it can only manage a 60mph after more than 13 secs. Top speed is only a party 220Km/hr.

Significantly, though, the new Dodge dart has received numerous worthy upgrades from the previous generations including a stiffer, extra driving modes, and a performance-tuned suspension.

The Interior

When it comes to the interior furnishing, Chrysler doesn’t disappoint and neither does the 2017 Dodge Dart GT. It might be a budget family sedan, but if the interior is anything to go by, then it still gives the impression of a high-end luxury sports car. From the novel 7-inch in-house LCD control panel to the 10.1 ultra-powerful music system, this car feels every inch premium. Besides, the stereo system has intuitive connectivity features such as 3.0 Bluetooth connectivity, which allows one to play music direct from their phone.

Price and release date

Now for a decently-sized compact sedan, with an advanced controls, automatic transmission and a heated steering wheel, then $21000 is quite a bargain. Compared to their cars in this price range, the 2017 Dodge Dart GT stands out in terms of performance, safety scale and general built quality.
