Mopar-Modified 2013 Dodge Dart Gets $26,480 MSRP

Mopar's version of the new 2013 Dodge Dart compact sedan has been priced at $26,480, including destination. The bolder Dart goes on sale this summer, and only 500 units will be produced.

For $26,480, the Mopar 2013 Dodge Dart comes with Pitch Black paint complemented by a Mopar blue stripe. While the driver’s seat is finished in the same blue color, the rest of the Katzkin-leather-covered seats are black with blue accents. While the Mopar Dart still uses an unchanged 160-hp turbocharged 1.4-liter I-4 with 184 lb-ft of torque and a six-speed manual transmission, ride height is lowered a little, and the steering has been retuned.

Gloss-black 18-inch wheels with low-profile tires, a Mopar body kit, a deck-lid spoiler, a retuned exhaust system, and upgraded disc brakes with slotted rotors complete the package. On the inside, the Mopar Dart has Dodge’s 8.4-inch touch-screen navigation display, wireless charging for smartphones, and premium Mopar floor mats. And since this is a 500-unit limited-edition model, each Mopar 2013 Dart will come with a personalized plate with vehicle specs and a sketch of the car signed by Mopar designer Mark Trostle.

For those who still balk at the idea of a $26,480 compact, consider that a 2013 Dart with the navigation system, nine-speaker sound system, turbo 1.4-liter I-4 instead of the naturally aspirated 2.0-liter I-4, six-speed dual-clutch automatic, leather seats, hands-free keyless entry, LED “racetrack taillights, and automatic highbeams costs just as much as the Mopar 2013 Dodge Dart.

What do you think about the limited-edition Mopar 2013 Dodge Dart? Would you consider buying one over a similarly priced Honda Civic Si or Kia Forte sedan?

If nobody wants the rally or limited dart, why would someone pay even more for the same Dart with moderate esthetic upgrades?! Who in their right mind would consider this when they can pay the same price for an actual performance car in the ST, GTI or Speed3? The Dodge Dart will continue to be dodged.
