The 2013 Dodge Dart is one of few vehicle to achieve the coveted Top Safety Pick+ award, a new award created to honor the cream of the crop. This adds to Dart’s previously earned IIHS Top Safety Pick status and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration 5-star crash rating – the agency’s highest score. The Dodge Dart’s performance is enhanced by more than 60 available safety and security features, including 10 standard-equipment air bags. Unsurpassed in its segment Dart’s 68% high-strength-steel content, which is also among the highest in industry
“We are very pleased that the Dart has earned a Top Safety Pick+ designation,” said Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO Dodge Brand – Chrysler Group LLC. “In addition to its solid structure – the Dart’s 68-percent high-strength-steel content ratio is one of the highest in the industry – the Dart boasts more than 60 safety and security features. They include 10 standard air bags, which is unsurpassed in the compact car segment.”
The Dart previously earned Top Safety Pick status from the IIHS, recording the maximum possible rating in each of four crash tests used by the IIHS to evaluate occupant protection, the primary attribute of a Top Safety Pick. The 2013 Dart achieved a score of “good” in tests that simulate rollover, rear, side and moderate-overlap frontal impacts. In addition, the Dodge Dart was awarded a 5-star overall rating for crashworthiness from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The Dodge Dart redefines performance with an agile, fun-to-drive experience, compliments of its Alfa Romeo roots. It is crafted with high-quality materials and loaded with state-of-the-art technology and class-leading safety features. The new Dart GT model builds on that foundation and offers attributes compact car buyers appreciate such as a 2.4L engine with 184 horsepower, a sport-tuned suspension, available hyper black 18-inch wheels, along with class-exclusive features like an 8.4-inch Uconnect Touchscreen media center, Uconnect hands-free with Bluetooth and LED racetrack tail-lamps.
