Dodge announced earlier this week that the 2013 Dart would have 14 interior color and trim combinations and the Dart teaser site has offered us this picture on the right of the passenger side inner door panel. As you can see on the right, one of the color packages includes bright red highlights with a dark grey/charcoal leather option while the “hard” pieces of the door panel such as the door open/locking lever and door grab handle inserts are finished in satin silver. The pictures displayed of the exterior showed us the 2013 Dart sporting R/T badges so we have to image that this uber sporty interior picture shows an interior package on the sporty R/T model. This shot also shows the buttons for the passenger side window and the electric door locks – with padding along the nearby armrest looking like Chrysler’s “super soft touch surfaces” that we have seen on a variety of current Chrysler Group models.
The second new teaser of the 2013 Dodge Dart shows what appears to be the leather clad front seat base of the new C segment sedan. Dodge has promised an upscale interior so we can expect plush leather appointments but based on the perforated red leather in the second picture (available by clicking the thumbnails on the right), we would expect that the Dart will include heated and cooled seating surfaces – at least as an option. This second picture also shows contrasting red stitching, similar to the contrasting stitch work we saw in the close-up teaser shot of the dashboard.
All of this leather and contrasting stitching shown in these teasers of the 2013 Dodge Dart is likely to come with an upcharge – possibly as part of the aforementioned R/T package. We can expect more basic cloth appointments and less dressed-up door panels but these shots make it very clear that the 2013 Dart will offer a sporty interior package – at least as an option.
