Retro car: 2013 Dodge Dart

7 retro cars rumble into the present
2013 Dodge Dart
  • 2013 Dodge Dart

  • Starting price: $15,995
  • What's retro: The name
  • What's modern: The Alfa Romeo connection

There's really nothing in common except the name and the brand between the all-new Dodge Dart, which was released in June, and the old Dodge Dart, which was last sold in 1976. The old Dodge Dart looks gigantic by today's standards, but at the time, it was relatively small for a domestic brand.

The new Dodge Dart is a compact retro car. It shares a platform with the Alfa Romeo brand, which is part of Fiat Auto, Chrysler Group's parent company since Chrysler's bankruptcy restructuring in 2009. Alfa's version is called the Giulietta.

It has three engine options, all with four cylinders -- a 2-liter, a 1.4-liter turbo engine and a 2.4-liter, which is considerable in a small package. The first two engines generate 160 horsepower, respectively; the third, 184 horsepower.
