The accolades keep rolling in. With its exclusive, state-of-the-art available Uconnect® system, the Dodge Dart has been named Connected World magazine’s 2014 Connected Car of the Year.
The award was presented on stage at the Connected World Conference Pavilion at the 2014 Chicago Auto Show. Basing their selections on what they describe as “the ideal mix of safety, convenience and infotainment technology, ” the magazine’s editorial team presented the award in six vehicle classifications: small, midsize, luxury, ultra-luxury, green and truck. The 2014 Dart took home the honors in the highly competitive small-vehicle category.
The Dart’s available Uconnect® system is built around a big, bright 8.4-inch touchscreen – the largest in its class – and offers easy, intuitive access to AM/FM radio, CD player, available SiriusXM® satellite radio (one-year subscription included), available Voice Command with Bluetooth® Streaming Audio, and available navigation system. The advanced connectivity features don’t stop there: Also included are a remote USB port, an SD memory card slot and an audio jack.
“The Connected Car of the Year Award is confirmation from a third-party source that the Dodge Dart is at the forefront of technology in its class, ” says Tim Kuniskis, president and CEO of the Dodge Brand. “The Dart’s available Uconnect® system with the 8.4-inch touchscreen is world class, intuitive and easy to use. When you add the Dart’s unsurpassed-in-its-class 10 air bags, 7-inch TFT LED instrument cluster and available Rear Cross Path detection and blind-spot monitoring, it really does offer the latest high-tech features designed to keep our customers connected, and all at a tremendous value.”
