The standard model equipped with Fiat-sourced 1.4-liter turbo is already capable of doing 39 mpg highway thanks to a shutters in the grille that improve efficiency at speed. However, the optional bit of kit will get you ‘at least’ 41 mpg highway.

“The all-new Dodge Dart is a thoroughly modern vehicle that’s fuel-efficient, beautifully designed and crafted, agile and fun-to-drive,” Dodge said in a statement.

“MultiAir technology delivers optimum combustion at any speed under all driving conditions by allowing direct and dynamic control of air intake and combustion. The result is up to a 15 percent increase in low engine rpm torque and a 7.5 percent improvement in fuel efficiency,” Dodge said.

If you want to know how economical the car is, here are some 2013 Dodge Dart Fuel-economy figures:

• The 2013 Dart with a 2.0-liter Tigershark engine mated to the 6-speed manual gets an EPA rating of 25/36 mpg (city/highway) and 29 combined.
• The 1.4-liter MulitAir Turbo engine mated to the 6-speed manual transmission gets an EPA rating of 27/39 mpg and 39 mpg combined.
• Dodge will introduce a Dodge Dart ‘Aero’ model (available 3rd quarter 2012) that will hit at least 41 mpg on the highway.
