Economy cars usually look and act like economy cars. There's nothing wrong with that; it's just a fact. However, the 2013 Dodge Dart doesn't look or feel like an economy car. There's an underlying refinement to the ride that makes the car feel more expensive than $24,000. Part of this is the sound of the engine. Unlike most small cars, it's not all in your face, even when revving the snot out of it. You can hear the engine for sure, but it sounds more like someone in another room talking very loudly.

Our Rallye version of the Dart has two things I really like: two exhaust outlets. Not only does this look cool, there's a little bit of an exhaust note as well. It's too soon to report on fuel economy, but we've barely used a tank and a half in the three weeks we've had the car. I know one version of the Dart can get up to 41 miles per gallon on the highway. But the Dodge Dart acts and sounds more like a sport sedan than an economy car.
