The 2015 Honda Civic is a staple of the compact class, but it's really not a standout compared to its competition in the Dodge Dart.
The 2015 Dodge Dart offers three engine options spread over five models, and every one of them outperforms the Honda Civic. The Civic's only engine (excluding manual-only SI models) is a 1.8-liter four-cylinder with just 143hp. The Dodge Dart's base engine is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 160hp. Dodge also offers a 2.4-liter I4 option as well as a 1.4-liter turbo I4 tuned for higher mileage in the Dart Aero.
Better Transmission Options
Both cars feature a manual transmission as standard, with the Dart getting six-speeds and the Civic only five, but most people prefer an automatic for the ease and convenience it provides. The Dodge Dart's automatic is a conventional six-speed with a torque converter, while the Civic uses a continuously variable transmission (CVT). While the CVT in the Civic is very efficient, many people have found it to produce an irritating drone and perform rather sluggishly. The Dart's six-speed has no droning issues, it shifts in the traditional fashion, and has a relaxed yet reactive cruising style.
When you compare similarly-equipped base models, the Dodge Dart's stick price is nearly $2,000 less than the Honda Civic's. Compare the top Dart Limited to the Civic EX-L with Navigation, and the Dart is still almost $1500 less, plus it comes with more features and a much bigger touchscreen interface for its navigation and secondary controls.
The 2015 Dodge Dart is an affordable, efficient compact car that looks anything, but cheap. Visit Cutter CDJR in Pearl City, HI and see just how little you can spend to look good in a Dart today.View Inventory
