DETROIT -- Thirty-six years after it ceased production, the Dodge Dart is back. Chrysler has resurrected the Dodge Dart, which is now a compact four-door sedan. At the Automotive News World Conference, Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne said that the Dart is based on the Alfa Romeo Giulitetta, but is 183 inches long and 72 inches wide.

It is equipped with a 160-horsepower, 2.0-liter in-line four cylinder engine. It makes about 145 lb.-ft. of torque. The 2.3-liter model has been fitted with Fiat MultiAir technology for better breathing and improved fuel efficency.

The Dart offers buyers a choice of three different engines: a turbocharged version of the same 1.4-liter used in the Fiat 500 minicar, and then updated "TigerShark" versions of the company's existing larger fours, in this case a base 2.0-liter and a more powerful 2.4-liter fitted with Fiat's MultiAir electronic valve gear.

At least one model of the Dart will achieve an EPA gas-mileage rating of 40 mpg or better. The company announced--confusingly--that it had achieved that number on an "unadjusted" basis, but we'll wait for the EPA ratings to emerge.

With a base price of $15,995, the 2013 Dart is meant to give Chrysler a viable competitor in the hotly contested compact sedan segment.
