The 2013 Dodge Dart has been making slow but steady headway in the compact segment this year, raising its sales volume for the past five months in a row and, in April, finally overtaking the 2013 Mazda Mazda3 in the monthly standings. Dodge’s Italian-American sedan now has its sights set on catching up to the brand-new 2013 Nissan Sentra, bolstered by three new feature bundles specifically tailored to the preferences of more buyers.
Said Tim Kuniskis, president and CEO of the Dodge Brand: "These new Dodge Dart Special Edition packages show how we're listening to our customers. Since we launched the all-new Dart last June, we've been able to see how customers are ordering their Darts, and as a result, we have simplified our offerings to meet their requests—allowing us to offer them an even better value in the process."
All are available at dealerships now.
