2015 Dodge Dart vs. 2015 Honda Civic

Central Illinois Drivers, Read This Before Driving a 2015 Dodge Dart

The 2015 Dart is the latest in Dodge’s long line of affordable cars, though its compact car design is new to this generation. The Dart has some interesting features for Central Illinois drivers thanks to its five different trim levels—Dodge has managed to modernize their Dart quite well for drivers who are willing to upgrade. The basic Dart SE, however, feels like it comes straight out of the past. This entry trim level is as basic as it gets, and its standard amenities are limited to power windows, air conditioning, and height-adjustable front seating. You would even have to upgrade the Dart for power mirrors and locks, with more modern features only found at even higher trim levels.

There are plenty of alternative small car choices in Central Illinois, but we suggest starting with one of the 2015 Kelley Blue Book KBB.com Small Car Best Buy Award* winners: the 2015 Honda Civic. As far as amenities are concerned, the Civic LX is redefining the standard with features like a rearview camera, a touchscreen infotainment system, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, and more. It’s practically a whole different class of vehicle from the Dodge. Then there’s one of the features Honda’s Civic is best known for: its fuel efficiency. The 2015 Honda Civic LX with CVT earns an EPA-estimated 39 highway and 30 city mpg* while the Dart only has 34 highway and 24 city mpg.

There’s a long list of things that separate these two small cars, though; see how they compare below and then take a test drive of a Civic at a Central Illinois Honda Dealer today.
