The Dodge Dart doesn't exactly have the presence of a Challenger SRT8, but there are some distinctive elements that help it stand out in a parking lot.

    The world needs more green and orange cars, and red and blue for that matter too. My first car was bright green, the next was orange, my current one is red, and I think the next will be blue.

    Which one is Orange Header, and which one is Citrus Peel?

    that orange is dreadfully awful in person. the particular shade would be more appropriate for a highway construction barrel... i mean, it's just bad. really, really bad.

    I can get behind some lively colors for cars...some of the current color dullness I blame on the prevalence of leasing...cars are like rental apartments - they're all beige or white so they don't offend the next prospect.
  • The Citrus Peel is the green looking one on the top right. And that picture is not a good representation of that color. It looks even worse in person. It is basically like the super bright yellow of the safety vests with a hint of green in it. While I am completely for more interesting colors on cars, this color should have remained in the highlighter.

    The Dart is my favorite small sedan right now. It's a shame that the automatic apparently sucks.

    @bankerdanny: I've driven the stick and the automatic, and the automatic is just fine. I didn't like the stick. What is apparently bad is the DDCT transmission, which is what's on the Edmunds car.

    what this car really needs is the 9 speed automatic- that can't come soon enough.

    The manual is easy enough to use (easily defined gates, clutch pedal is light and friction point extremely easy to find) but coming from all of the cars I've driven, the clutch pedal and shift knob especially have ridiculously long travel. It's almost comical how the 1-3-5 shifts result in the knob nearly hitting the center stack (making the cubby useless) and the 2-4-6 shifts nearly hit the arm rest (which is also at the wrong height for your arm).
