Dodge Dart 2013 Interiors details revealed

The 2013 Dodge Dart will debut on January 9 at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show, putting to rest rumors that the brand's new compact sedan would be called the Dodge Hornet, Duster or Camber.Dodge has resurrected the Dart nameplate, which had a 16-year run from 1960-'76. Dodge said in a statement that Dart buyers will get a choice of three four-cylinder engines, including a 1.4-liter MultiAir Turbo engine.

The new Dart is a critically important offering from Dodge, since it targets the Chevrolet Cruze, Ford Focus and Hyundai Elantra and marks the brand's most serious offensive into the compact sedan segment since the Dodge Neon — which has been off the market for seven years.

Marchionne, in an interview with Reuters, indicated he expects the new Dart will be rated by the EPA at 40 mpg on the highway. Fiat, which has controlled Chrysler since the U.S. automaker emerged from bankruptcy last year, is entitled to receive another 5-percent equity stake in Chrysler if it is able to certify at least one new car at 40 mpg, according to Automotive News.
