The production of the Dodge Dart, American saloon based on the same platform of Alfa Romeo Giulietta, has started. The video released by Chrysler shows the first model out of the assembly line at its Belvidere’s plant in Illinois. The population of this area is particularly grateful to Fiat, because without Dart the factory would have risked closure.
In the States there are great expectations for this promising car, which is already seen as a commercial success, thanks to its 1.4-litre turbo engine of Italian origins, although many would like to see a sportier version, maybe with larger wheels, side skirts and a 2.4-litre engine. The price of the base model is $ 15,995 and it will be launched in five trim levels. The car will be available in showrooms from next month.
