Reviewed - 2013 Dodge Dart: Alfa Romeo DNA Makes A Difference 

We finally get our first Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Ram product in to test on Rumblestrip.NET and Ten Minute Test Drive, and it's the Dodge Dart Rallye.

If you are a fan of Top Gear, you know that, according to them, you can not be a "proper Petrol Head" unless you have owned an Alfa Romeo. Well, here in the U.S., Alfa's have not been sold new for almost 20 years, so, if you wanted an Alfa, you drove something old.

With Chrysler now owned by FIAT, who owns Alfa, that can now change, The Dodge Dart is built off an Alfa platform and we wanted to know, does that DNA come through in the Dodge, that's what we find out in this review.

Reviewed: 2012 Toyota Prius C

 

Back in January we went down to Florida to do a first drive on the new Toyota Prius C, the latest member of the Prius family within Toyota.  While we didn't get to spend much time with the car on that drive, we came away with a good first impression.  That impression was that the Prius C felt like a car first and a hybrid second.
Now we've spent a week with the car, and the question is, good car, or just another hybrid gimmick.  Let's dive in a see if Toyota has come up with a hybrid that a non-hybrid lover would drive.  Make sure you check out our full photo gallery below the video.
