TrueDelta Reviews the Real Gas Mileage of the 2013 Dodge Dart

2013 Dodge Dart Real Gas Mileage: Cons
YearComment
The changes for the GT have changed a few areas from "why nots" to "whys." I also didn't mind the deep instrument panel and limited steering wheel adjustment as much this time around. In a back-to-back drive, the instrument panel on the Focus seemed even deeper than the Dart's. If you're tall, you might feel like you're sitting too high in the Dart. I acclimated. But the larger engine didn't help fuel economy. The EPA ratings fall from the 2.0's already marginal 24 mpg city, 34 highway to 21/30. (Or from 25/36 to 23/33 if you're comparing cars with manual transmissions.) The Buick manages 21/30 even with its optional turbocharged engine--and received a "why not to buy" for this. These days, most midsize cars do better, and most compacts do much better. In our real-world driving the Dart GT's trip computer reported less dreadful numbers, at least in the suburbs. When the GT was driven with little care for fuel economy, the trip computer reported averages in thelow to mid 20s. With a light foot it reported averages in thelow 30s. In one fairly long highway trip, though, the trip computer verified the EPA number with an average just over 30. This new engine employs FIAT's "multiair" throttle-free intake system, allegedly good for a seven-percent fuel economy bump. As with the 1.4T engine, though, this technology has little evident benefit in the EPA's tests or real-world driving. Note: for 2014, Dodge has improved the Dart GT automatic's EPA ratings from 21/30 to 23/35. They did this partly by substituting the taller final drive ratio from other Darts, so the 2014 GT won't be as quick. see full Dodge Dart review

Coming from a car that averaged 23 mpg, I looked for a car that would provide me with the best mpg that would fit my style. The Dart had me from the first announcement. see full Dodge Dart review

Fuel economy was sub par, at a 24 mpg return on a 4 hour trip in the flat lands of southern Michigan to central Ohio, I'd rather drive my current ride, a 2014 Charger that gets 22 mpg on the same trip. City mileage was a joke at something like 15 mpg on my car. My Buddy has a 2013 Focus that returns 36 mpg highway on that same trip and his city mileage is in the mid 20's. This was with me driving, so I feel it is a reasonable comparision. see full Dodge Dart review

Great Gas mileage compared to my previous cars. Can't wait to take a much longer trip to see how well it does. see full Dodge Dart review

Considering the modest displacement (1.4L), I did expect better fuel economy, but it was an improvement on a prior vehicle. I also admit that I was an aggressive driver, so someone else with a milder driving style could probably improve on the fuel economy. see full Dodge Dart review
