2014 Dodge Dart review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2014 Dodge Dart?

The 2014 Dodge Dart is a front-wheel-drive compact sedan that seats five and competes with the Ford Focus, Chevrolet Cruze, Honda Civic and Hyundai Elantra. It is offered in SE, SXT, Aero, GT and Limited trim levels.

What's New on the 2014 Dodge Dart?

For 2014, the Dart's optional 2.4-liter engine is available on more trim levels. There are no other significant changes.

How Does the 2014 Dodge Dart Compare to Other Compact Sedans?

Like other compact sedans, the Dart is offered in an efficiency-focused trim level: While the Dart Aero can achieve a respectable EPA-estimated 28/41 mpg city/highway (compared with the base SE's 25/36 mpg), it increases the cost of the vehicle and doesn't distinguish itself significantly from the Ford Focus SFE (28/40 mpg) or the Chevrolet Cruze Eco (28/42 mpg).

While the 2014 Dart's 97.2 cubic feet of cabin volume approaches that of many mid-size cars – on paper – it feels like relatively little of that space is dedicated to backseat, which feels cramped even compared with the Honda Civic's. The Civic also has less overall interior space than Dodge's sedan.

What Features in the 2014 Dodge Dart Are Most Important?

The 2014 Dart comes standard with a 160-horsepower, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine paired with a six-speed manual transmission. There are two optional engines: a 160-hp, turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder and a 184-hp, 2.4-liter four-cylinder. The 1.4-liter engine is available with a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, while the 2.0- and 2.4-liter engines are available with a conventional six-speed automatic. Every 2014 Dart comes equipped with front-wheel drive.

Significant standard features include 16-inch wheels, grille styling that varies by trim level, LED taillights, seating for five, cloth seats and a folding backseat. Notable optional features include 17- and 18-inch wheels, heated side mirrors, fog lights, "racetrack" LED taillight surround, dual exhaust tips, a power moonroof, a 7-inch screen in the instrument panel that displays vehicle information and radio settings, an 8.4-inch touchscreen in the dashboard, a heated steering wheel and a navigation system.

Standard safety features include antilock brakes, an electronic stability system and 10 airbags. Optional safety features include a blind spot warning system with rear cross-traffic alert, rear parking sensors and a backup camera.

Should I Buy the 2014 Dodge Dart?

The 2014 Dodge Dart shines if you're judging the car only by its style – one of its big selling points is personalization; and regardless of the color combinations you choose, it cuts an intriguing profile that's more svelte and subtle than previous Dodge offerings.

While the 2014 Dart offers some premium features – like Chrysler's 8.4-inch Uconnect system and a Garmin navigation system – its powertrains are decidedly lacking. Steering is surprisingly engaging for a compact, but the powertrain options largely feel sluggish, especially when trying to squeeze out a little more speed for a quick pass at higher speeds.

The compact car segment is a crowded one that's full of quality offerings. The Dart has plenty of flash, but it's lacking where it counts.

Absolutely Love my 2014 Dodge Dart

I bought a 2014 Dart Rallye 2.4 litre with 107k miles and I'm extremely happy with it. Its an automatic transmission and shifts perfect, in manual mode it runs great and the gas mileage is outstanding!!! It handles like its pn rails, and other than my 1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse it the sexiest,sleekest, most comfortable car Ive owned and this is the 30th car I've owned, so not bad Dodge. its a notch below my 2015 Chrysler 200C, but just barely, so for the price I recommend this vehicle to all drivers

Great Car

I love my 2015 SXT Dodge Dart .. I financed the girl brand new and paid it off .. it’s 2022 and I’m just now about to sell it because I’m looking for a upgrade … the car didn’t start giving me problems till it was completely paid off .. overall I loved this car ! It was my first car so my next car has high expectations

Awesome Baby Dodge

When I was a kid my Mom owned a 1971 Dodge Dart Swinger, some of you may remember them two door, vinyl tops,awesome little cars. I Learned to drive in that car. Fast forward to 2014, Fiat owned Dodge and brought back the Dart, unfortunately they discontinued them, until an incident where I became disabled, I loved my Baby Dodge, awesome styling, fun to drive, it was my favorite car
