It was 1976 when the last Dodge Dart rolled off the assembly line. It was the car for the masses and if you grew up between 1970 and 1980 then it’s almost guaranteed that you knew someone who owned one. Back then the Dart was an economy car, and even though they were a bit on the ugly side that didn’t stop Dodge from selling a boatload of them. Now it’s 2012 and the Dart is back as a brand new 2013 model in the hopes of rekindling some of that old spark. It’s based on the Alfa Romeo Giulietta and comes equipped with the same 1.4-liter Fiat 500 Abarth. So does this mean the Dart is a sporty American car with Italian DNA or simply a pile of pasta with ketchup on top? Click through to the video to find out.
