If you want an economy car that packs a punch, consider a used 2014 Dodge Dart GT.
The Tigershark 2.4-liter four-cylinder under the hood lives up to its name, producing a ferocious184 hp and 171 lb-ft of torque. In addition to its wild side, the engine also yields an admirable fuel economy of 22 mpg city/33 hwy.
Feeling mischievous? Execute a few figure eights on a skidpad and you’ll be pleasantly surprised to see that the Dart GT can achieve an astounding 0.85 average g of lateral grip.
Highway driving can be nerve wracking, especially when you’re behind the wheel of an economy car. However, a KBB.com review says that the GT’s European-inspired sports suspension delivers a controlled and confident feel. You'll effortlessly pass semi trucks and merge into rush hour traffic.
Speaking of making an entrance on the highway, the Dart GT can go from zero to 60 mph in a respectable 8.7 seconds. You’ll have to slow down at some point, no matter how much fun you’re having. Luckily, this compact car will reach a full stop from 60 mph in an exceedingly short 117 feet.
