2015 Dodge Dart vs. 2015 Honda Civic

Read This Before Driving Home a 2015 Dodge Dart in Mid-Missouri

The 2015 Dodge Dart is just the most recent in a long-running line of popular cars in the Mid-Missouri area, though the latest generation overhauled the vehicle quite a bit. Though there are many high-tech amenities found on upper trim levels—including the fuel-economy boosting Aero—the basic Dart SE is about as limited as a small car gets these days. The only features found on the entry-level Dart are limited to power windows, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, and air conditioning; if you want power mirrors or power locks, you’ll need to upgrade a trim level. You should consider upgrading a few trim levels if you’re looking for modern features like a touchscreen interface. Central Missouri drivers have a variety of other options when they want a small car, though, and we recommend starting with a 2015 Kelley Blue Book KBB.com Small Car Best Buy Award* winner: the Honda Civic. The Civic leaves the Dart in the stone age when it comes to features, too. Entry-level Civic models come with a touchscreen infotainment system, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, a rearview camera, SMS texting, and Pandora radio. As far as fuel economy is concerned, the Civic comes out ahead of the Dart as well: the 2015 Civic LX with CVT is rated at an EPA-estimated 39 highway and 30 city mpg* and the Dart only gets 34 highway and 24 city mpg on its SE trim. See how the basic Dart SE stacks up to the Civic LX below in our side-by-side comparison, then stop by a Mid-Missouri Honda Dealer to take a test drive of the Civic and experience it for yourself.
