  • Second consecutive year Dodge Dart named "Best Bet"
  • Latest in string of prestigious awards, ranging from IIHS Top Safety Pick and Strategic Vision's "Most Loved," to Connected World magazine's 2014 Connected Car of the Year

The 2014 Dodge Dart has been named a "Best Bet" in the compact car category of this year's edition of The Car Book.

It is the second consecutive year the Dart has been so honored.

The recognition is based on an analysis of wide-ranging information collected from government and independent sources. The analysis is conducted by The Car Book and the Center for Auto Safety and considers crash test results, safety features, rollover rating, preventative maintenance schedules, repair costs, warranty coverage, fuel economy, complaint data and insurance costs.

The 2014 Dodge Dart achieved an overall score of "9." The highest possible score is "10."

"The Car Book's recognition of the Dart as a 'Best Bet' for two years running confirms what our customers are telling us," said Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO–Dodge Brand. "The Dodge Dart has unique combination of distinctive styling, fun-to-drive performance, up to 41 mpg, segment-leading safety features, and easy-to-use technology, all combined, making it a tremendous value."

The 2014 Dodge Dart scored "9" for having low repair costs, and "8" in the key categories of warranty coverage, rollover rating, fuel economy and crash tests.

The 2014 Dart recently was named a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The car also boasts a 5-star rating – the highest possible assessment – in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's crash-testing program.

The Dodge Dart also tops the compact car segment in total quality, according to Strategic Vision Total Quality Index

The Dart's performance is enhanced by more than 60 available safety and security features. The list includes 10 standard-equipment air bags, a total unsurpassed in the compact-car segment.

The 2014 Dodge Dart further benefits from a high-strength-steel content-ratio of 68 percent, one of the highest in the industry.

Equipped with a 1.4-liter turbocharged, intercooled I-4 engine with MultiAir electro-hydraulic valve-actuation and six-speed manual transmission, the Dart also earns a highway fuel-economy rating of 41 miles per gallon (mpg).

"We appreciate the fact that Dodge has made a significant contribution to improving the market choices for the American car buyer," says The Car Book's Jack Gillis. "The fact that your vehicles have the quality and features most important to today's car buyer is a testament to your desire to meet customer needs."

Being named a "Best Bet" in The Car Book is the latest accolade bestowed on the Dodge Dart. Its celebrated Uconnect hands-free navigation and communication technology earned 2014 Connected Car of the Year honors from Connected World Magazine.

The award was given in the small car category. The Dodge Dart is considered a small car, but its total interior volume of 97.2 cu. ft. (2.75 cu m) rivals that of mid-size cars, according to U.S. Environmental Protection Agency classifications.

Strategic Vision also recently listed the 2014 Dart among its "Most Loved Vehicles in America." Ratings are based on calculations that consider vehicle attributes and performance, and customer attitude.
