The Unites Services Automobile Association (USAA) recently announced its best vehicles for teenagers, and the Dodge Dart and Avenger made the list! These vehicles were chosen becaue they cost less than $25,500, have high safety and reliability ratings, and cost less in auto insurance.
Teen drivers will be drawn to the sporty design of the 2013 Dodge Dart, which is available in six trim levels – SE, SXT, Rallye, Aero, Limited and GT. The exterior expresses visual drama with clean lines from nose to tail, the unmistakeable split crosshair grille, and available full-width racetrack style LED taillamps.
The standard engine is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder that produces 160 horsepower and 148 lb-ft of torque. The other option is a 2.4-liter TigerShark MultiAir II engine that delivers 184 horsepower or up to 41 highway mpg.
The interior of the 2013 Dart is packed with features making it the most technologically advanced car in its class. Features include ambient lighting, soft-touch surfaces, accent stitching on the dash and seats, and a premium 7-inch Thin Film Transistor reconfigurable cluster display complete with rich graphics and real-time information.
The 2013 Dodge Dart also has class-leading safety and security features including 10 standard airbags, reactive front head restraints, Blind Spot Monitoring, and Rear Cross Path Detection.
