Have a new teen driver? We do and buying a car for them has been a headache. Especially since college is just a few months away and they need it so they can get around. One of the cars we have been looking at is the Dodge Dart Sedan. It is a great little car that is good on gas, has an excellent safety rating, and, of course, a great entertainment package that every teen is looking for! Holden Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram has a pretty blue one on the website and you should check it out!
Below are some other great reasons to buy your teen a Dodge Dart!
With a three year or 36,000 mile comprehensive plan and a 5 year or 100,000 mile powertrain plan, Dodge’s warranties ensure buyers are well protected in the event of any defect.
The 2015 Dodge Dart offers two transmission options, one six speed manual, which is standard, and a six speed automatic, available upon request as an optional add on. For the more performance minded buyer, the standard manual is a nice touch, especially given that it is a six speed. The automatic, on the other hand, offers the convenience of not having to actively shift.
Optional Engine Upgrades
While both the base engine and the optional upgrade are inline four cylinder engines, the upgrade features a turbocharger system. The base engine is a 2.0L, whereas the turbocharged engine is a 1.4L. This smaller, yet more powerful engine provides significant advantages over the base in both torque and acceleration, particularly from a stop. If you are going to purchase a Dart, this upgrade is highly advisable, as it will greatly increase your satisfaction with the driving experience. On higher trims, there is also the option of a 2.4L engine which provides more horsepower than either of the other two at 184HP (in comparison to 160 on the two smaller engines).
Excellent Safety Rating
While not always the first thought in the mind of the potential car buyer, safety is a hugely important matter, and the 2015 Dart delivers on it. Besides the airbag system, which features no less than ten bags set to deploy to protect driver and passengers alike in the event of a collision, the Dart can be equipped with parking assistance, blind spot monitoring systems, and even windshield wipers that will automatically come on if moisture is detected. All of these options combine to make the Dart a supremely safe vehicle to drive.
Excellent Entertainment System
The 2015 Dart’s console and entertainment system are state of the art. With nearly everything now digital and touch screen based, the console offers supreme ease of use. As for the entertainment system, CD players are no longer a standard option, but the new system offer connectivity to nearly every type of smart phone or MP3 player.
