This is a competitive price against segment leaders like the Hyundai Elantra, Chevy Cruze and Ford Focus, but it doesn’t top the Elantra, which starts at $15,195 with a manual transmission.

Dodge also announced the Dart will have a trim that gets 40 mpg on the highway. It will be equipped with the turbocharged 1.4-liter engine, with a six-speed dual clutch transmission. In early testing, the high-mileage trim level has seen an EPA unadjusted rating of just over 41 mpg combined, but Dodge only confirms it will be a 40 mpg highway trim. The Cruze, Focus and Honda Civic all have similar trim levels.
