Dodge president Reid Bigland said: "The new Dart GT embodies the best attributes that compact-car buyers are looking for, including outstanding style, performance, technology and value.”

The GT has a unique performance enhancing nose with black accents and a black grille; black projector headlight housings; body-colour door releases; heatable steering wheel and front seats; dual-zone auto aircon; a universal garage-door opener and GT badge.

The new version of the Dart will also have some unique styling touches - among them an dual exhaust and diode tail lights.
