Very curious too about the move. Both cars are so entirely on the other end of the spectrum from each other. Like an R1 to a Segway spectrum.

Just took a glance at the Dodge Dart and they don't look bad at all.

I believe the Dart is all around a better car accept the power of a V8.

I think it depends on what you consider better.

I hadn't even heard of these. I really like the instrument cluster where you can customise the centre bit. Like a much more advanced version of what we have in our cars.

I have a 100 miles on the odometer and Im getting 22 MPG (all city). Its slow off the line, but is quick once it builds up boost. Its a 6 speed dual clutch auto.

Dodge's airport LED rear lighting is awful, not only on the Dart but the new Charger as well. Hopefully there is a mod to turn most of it off.

I really like the new Dodge's but that lighting is a deal-breaker.

I would have parked the G8 and drove the dart as a daily.

I didn't know they had dual clutches in the Dart. That's pretty impressive!

It shifts like a manual without having to push a clutch or go through the gears.
