It looks like Dodge has acknowledged the trend of consumers flocking to the European hatchbacks and have patented their own hatchback on the Dodge Dart. The lines are very similar to the sedan, but as you can see the rear overhang is shorter. Some say it's more of a liftback, while some are calling it a notchback - nevertheless, we think it's a very interesting design. There is no information on when and if this new body style will make it into production but it sure does look promising. Perhaps a refresh for the 2014 model? We don't know, but the probability of this particular design making it to US shores would be an interesting decision for Chrysler.
Whatever the outcome, hatchbacks are definitely hot nowadays, and it will be interesting to see if a 5 door Alpha Romeo inspired Dodge Dart Hatchback will appeal to consumers. What do you think? Interesting design that would get your money, or are you simply not interested?
