The Dodge Dart GT is the sporty version of the regular Dodge Dart. The Dart is a compact sedan manufactured by Dodge, based on an enlarged Fiat Compact platform and debuted at the 2012 North American International Auto Show on January 9, 2012. The Dart is Dodge's first compact sedan since the discontinuation of the Dodge Neon and Dodge Neon SRT-4 in 2005.
The Dodge Dart GT is the first car in Class D and, therefore, the first car in the entire game.
The Dart is one of only three Dodge vehicles in the game, with the other two being the SRT 2013 Dodge Challenger SRT8 and the Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR-X. However, as shown by a Career Event for Dodge cars in Season 6: Adrenaline, the Challenger is not recognized as a Dodge car, but rather, as an SRT car.
The Dart has the following rank statistics:
- Starting rank: 505
- MAX rank: 778
- PRO rank: 529
- MAX+PRO rank: 802
- Tuning Kit bonus: +65
- Stock to MAX+PRO rank difference: 297
- Upgrade rank percentages: 11/71/11/7
- Nitro Efficiency: 10/15/20
Being the first vehicle in the game, the Dart can be considered the worst vehicle in the game. However, this doesn't mean that it can't compete with other cars (or truck/motorcycles). When fully upgraded, the Audi R8 e-tron still lacks a decent raw top speed (top speed without nitro) and the Tesla Model S still lacks both good drifting and handling. Especially at the lowest level (ranks 500-600), where all cars are not yet upgraded, the Dart is still a fierce competitor in Multiplayer.
The Dart has basic statistics. It features a high raw top speed (for its rank) and good handling/decent drifting. However, the Dart suffers from the worst nitro efficiency in the game, this means that it can only use its nitro boost for short periods of time. Fortunately for the Dart, this isn't too big of a problem because of the Dart's low nitro speed boost, to begin with. On the contrary, the low nitro speed boost results in the Dart possessing an average acceleration speed.
Usage (Starter's Car)
The Dodge Dart is given to the player for free as a starter's car. Several other cars that can be considered as starter's cars appear to the right of the Dart. These include the Audi R8 e-tron, Model S, Cadillac ATS, and Cadillac XTS.
Unlike previous installations in the Asphalt Series, all cars are available for purchase immediately. However, upon first playing the game, the player will generally not have enough money to buy any of the aforementioned cars unless they pay real money for the game. So, the Dart is almost always the first car that the player uses in Season races. After a few races, the player can choose to continue using the Dart as a starter's car. However, it is usually a smarter choice to switch to a better car like the Scion FR-S (which is now removed from sale due to license issues surrounding Toyota) or the Mini Cooper S Roadster.

In short, the Dodge Dart GT is competitive to an extent only in the ~550 rank, i.e its starting rank, as at this level the most common competition are other Darts, Audi R8 e-tron and occasionally the Renault Dezir and Ford F-150, all un-upgraded and hence showing similar stats. Therefore, winning depends on skill and Boosters.
However, at such a low rank, the player will find it difficult to go beyond the 1600 rating, or just barely make the Pro League. Despite this, with adequate skill the player can usually finish first or second most of the time, thus making the Dart a good car for grinding Multiplayer points.
