2016 Dodge Dart vs. 2017 Hyundai Sonata Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Dodge Dart than in the Hyundai Sonata, due to the Dodge Dart's smaller rear head- and legroom. The Hyundai Sonata will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Dodge Dart.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Dodge Dart as you will with the Hyundai Sonata, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Based on MSRP, the Dodge Dart is clearly a better financial choice over the Hyundai Sonata. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Dodge Dart is much higher than that for the Hyundai Sonata.

Dimensions
The Dodge Dart is a little narrower than the Hyundai Sonata, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The Dodge Dart is slightly shorter than the Hyundai Sonata, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The Dodge Dart has much less torque than the Hyundai Sonata, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Dodge Dart is significantly less powerful than the Hyundai Sonata. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Dodge Dart and the Hyundai Sonata.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Dodge Dart is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Sonata.
