Dart is not a new name for Dodge. From 1960 to 1976, a compact car was already produced under it. The current one replaced the Caliber model. Working on the new Dart, the engineers spent over 600 hours in the wind tunnel. However, the technical part was given no less attention.
In particular, the Americans lengthened and expanded the platform, which automatically affected the overall dimensions of the sedan. Its length is 4671 mm, its width is 1829 mm, and its height is 1466 mm. And all this with a wheelbase of 2703 mm. The front and rear suspensions, however, remained independent, like the Alfa Romeo Giulietta. McPherson struts are used at the front, and a multi-link design at the rear.
