With so many crossovers hitting the launch pad, it was only to be expected that the 2019 Dodge Dart would include a new design and a makeover as well with more than just a few changes. With the automaker naturally keeping mum about the upcoming product launch, we had to hunt for information and finally vetted the lot so that we could prep the review. So let’s take a closer look at the new Dodge Dart, shall we?
2019 Dodge Dart Overview:
The 2019 Dodge Dart is a compact sedan that was first introduced in 2012 and ever since then, it had hardly undergone much change. It seems that the automaker decided that it was high time that the model went in for a makeover and one that manages to rehash the old design with a better aerodynamic one, and with more features to boot. Well, ever since the news about the makeover made the headlines, it did certainly peak our interest and we could barely wait to take a look to see what Dodge has up its sleeve. But one thing’s for sure, the car would definitely have to stand out and from what we have seen from the leaked images, it does just that and more.
Exterior, under the hood:
The 2019 Dodge Dart comes with a brand and bold new design or it’s a rehashed version of the old one with major changes to it. It comes with a bolder and more aggressive look with new front fascia, smaller grille on the front with the Dodge emblem, emblazoned on it along with LED headlights, tweaked to match the front contours and curves.
The new design is indeed aerodynamic, from its flowing lines to the boot. The new model is expected to come in four colour tones, orange, white, blue, and red, with the usual variations of Black, silver, grey, and brown.
Apart from this, it is expected that the new model will feature a larger wheelbase, which translates to more space on the interior with more girth. The rear doors are slightly larger in the new model which can be a tad irritating when opening it at close quarters but on the whole, the exterior certainly looks as good as can be expected for a compact sedan. The smooth, flowing design is definitely going to make the new model stand out for all the right reasons.
The 2019 Dodge Dart comes with the enhanced suspension which should provide for a better riding experience. Apart from this, the car features some of the best in comfort and luxury, from heated leather seats to power steering, along with a compact dashboard. It also features the latest in infotainment with a touch screen panel, as well as premium audio speakers.
The higher trims also come with advanced safety features which should go some way to providing you with some safety when driving this new model on the roads. It also comes with adaptive cruise control, Blue tooth USB 2.0 docks and much more. The interiors are indeed spacious within reason and you should have enough leg and headroom.
Engine, Release Date, and Price
The 2019 Dodge Dart comes with 2.9 and 2.4-litre engine that comes with 160 horsepower; you can expect the new model to be launched mid-2019 but the launch date may be pushed back depending on whether Dodge is looking to change a few more things or add in something else to the mix. You can expect the price for the new model to be pegged at $24000.
