    A lot of Fiat influence went into this car, I like the styling. From an enthusiast standpoint, the lower base models with the 1.4L turbo engine intrigues me more than the 2.4L in the supposed sport "R/T" model. The 3200 pound curb weight I'm seeing for it, is a bit of a put off though.

    TailGunner's right, it's on a widened and stretched variant of the platform underpinning the Alfa Giuletta. As a result it should be pretty decent to drive. The interior looks great as well. I'm excited about it but i've always had a bit of a soft spot for Chrysler products. Hopefully it'll do well in terms of reliability.

    The car hasn't launched yet and a rumor suggests that it'll be pushed back a few day after April Fools Day in order to prevent any bad luck from messing up the launch: http://www.autoblog.com/2012/03/10/marchionne-may-delay-dodge-dart-launch-to-avoid-april-fools-day/

    Very attractive car with a great interior, but I've never liked putting a retro name on a non-retro car.
