The 2013 Dodge Dar equipped with a six-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission and a 1.4-liter turbo (same as in the 500 Abarth) has been rated by the EPA at 37 mpg highway and 27 mpg city. Very respectable figures.
However, they are down on the 39/27 you get with the manual. However, it does show that more modern technology pays off, as a 2-liter Dart with an automatic gearbox will only do 24 mpg city and 34 mpg highway. Guess Hyundai technology didn’t pay off in this case.

However, if it’s economy you want, you should also consider the optional Aero Package, which Dodge said will get you “at least” 41 mpg highway for the manual.

“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.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
