'We are able to give Dart customers a well-crafted, high-quality interior similar in its execution to that of the award-winning interior of the Charger and infused with exciting colors, eye-catching ambient lighting and state-of-the-art technology.' 'Starting with the available heated steering wheel, the Dodge Dart's interior leads the small-car pack in features and comfort,' said Drew Winter, Editor-in-chief, WardsAuto World magazine. The all-new 2013 Dodge Dart zeroes in on customer comfort and personal style, setting a new standard for compact-car interior refinement. Starting with modern Dodge DNA and through the use of innovative ambient interior lighting, well-crafted soft-touch materials, high-tech features and unexpected bursts of color, the 2013 Dodge Dart is loaded with cool amenities and unexpected delights for both drivers and passengers.

'Sales of the Chrysler 300 have been on fire not only because of its best-in-class 31 highway mpg, but, most importantly, the reaction of customers and critics to this great car. There are no more compromises in the cars that we make; consumers can expect only delightful surprises from driving cars 'Imported from Detroit.'' 'If Bentley made an affordable family car, its interior would look like the Chrysler 300 Luxury. It's smart and modern with a generous helping of over-the-top lavishness,' said Drew Winter, editor-in-chief, WardsAutoWorld magazine. The all-new Chrysler 300C Luxury Series are the most richly appointed sedans the brand has ever offered.
