Is the Dodge Neon Coming Back to the U.S.? | Automobile Magazine
Of course I think it looks ugly, and a Turkish-made Fiat product will probably go over like a lead balloon in this country. However this is probably the cheapest way for FCA to stay in the compact car game.
Thanks for the link. Here's another one, albeit in Spanish: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5QSg...M#t=47.1722918
If this is what they will ultimately replace the Dart with I predict sales to be even worse than with the Dart. It's boring, it's ugly, and it's a Fiat underneath the Dodge badge.
I can't believe I'm gonna say this, but, I think it would sell as a plain - ordinary - non over hyped small Dodge product here in the USA. I don't think the
place of manufacturer makes much diff to buyers anymore. They assemble the Hellcats in Canada. People buy them. It would have to have a lower price point than Cruze's and Foci . It's more like Mitsubishi Mirage territory. It's sad to visit my Dodge Dealer (like I did today for inspection/oil change) and not see the Full Spectrum of CARS being promoted or buzz talk being thrown about. It's friggin' CARS, ladies and gentlemen! Even the smaller and cheaper ones are welcome!
But I will concede.... they would have to redesign that God awful dash board in the center display screen area. Elyucco!
Hey, with the lighter weight, and a few pieces of aero type add ons to the body, throw in a supercharged 2.4 and a short throw manual......
Allpar always has such informative reads..... in this case, the unpardonable - if not usa unsellable - horsepower. Wow.
I have seen the bitter end of reasonably priced small cars that can get out of their own way... and it hurts.....
so.... SO.... the 1.4 manual is already discontinued as of this very month according to Allpar. That will get you this:
and the thing that could have been a Saga continues. Slowly.
I guess this all means we ain't gonna see a lux roadster with some guts anytime soon........

Take Me To Your Leader
Can we have a Plymouth Road Runner instead?
Anybody else notice that there are no driver or passenger airbags? That actually is typical of Mexico spec vehicles. I'll bet that sled does poorly in crash tests also. A lot of manufacturers make vehicles for south of the border only. They're often cheap to build and make them a good profit.
