Changes to the 2016 Dodge Dart are limited to visual equipment changes. A Rallye appearance package is available on the base SE model
The Dodge Dart debuted for the 2013 model year and heads into 2016 without much changing. As such, the car's virtues are pretty much the same. The good news is that there are still some appealing aspects to Dodge's small sedan. It's roomier on the inside than you'd expect, with a surprising amount of rear legroom for taller passengers. The available Uconnect touchscreen interface is attractive, functional and more user-friendly than most other setups in this class. Handling is impressive, too, particularly on the performance-oriented GT trim. It's nice to see that there's some spirit backing up the Dart's sporty styling.
