Being the first vehicle in the game, the Dart can be considered the "worst" vehicle in the game. However, this doesn't mean that it can't compete with other vehicles. When upgraded to a similar rank, the Audi R8 e-tron still lacks a decent raw top speed (top speed without nitro) and the Tesla Model S still lacks both good drifting and handling. Especially at the lowest level (ranks 800-900), where all cars are not yet upgraded, the Dart is still a viable option in Multiplayer, especially against cars like Ford F-150 and Renault DeZir which have very low top speeds at stock.
The Dart has basic statistics. It features a high raw top speed (for its rank) and good handling/decent drifting. However, the Dart suffers from the worst nitro efficiency in the game, this means that it can only use its nitro boost for short periods of time. Fortunately for the Dart, this isn't too big of a problem because of the Dart's low nitro speed boost, to begin with. On the contrary, the low nitro speed boost results in the Dart possessing an average acceleration speed despite its moderately good acceleration stat in its rank delta.
The Dodge Dart is given to the player for free as a starter's car. Several other cars that can be considered as starter's cars appear to the right of the Dart. These include the Audi R8 e-tron, Tesla Model S, Cadillac ATS, and Cadillac XTS.
Unlike previous installations in the Asphalt Series, all cars are available for purchase immediately. However, upon first playing the game, the player will generally not have enough money to buy any of the aforementioned cars unless they pay real money for the game. So, the Dart is almost always the first car that the player uses in Season races, considering the fact that the freely given away Audi R8 e-tron is worse at stock. After a few races, the player can choose to continue using the Dart as a starter's car. However, it is usually a smarter choice to switch to a better car like the Alfa Romeo MiTo GTA or the Mini Cooper S Roadster.
In short, the Dodge Dart GT is competitive to an extent only in the ~900 rank, i.e its starting rank, as at this level the most common competition are other Darts, Audi R8 e-tron and occasionally the Renault Dezir and Ford F-150, all un-upgraded and hence showing similar stats. Therefore, winning depends on skill and Boosters.
However, at such a low rank, the player will find it difficult to go beyond the 1600 rating, just barely make the Pro League. Despite this, with adequate skill the player can usually finish first or second most of the time, thus making the Dart a good car for grinding Multiplayer points.
The 2019 Spring Update updated the upgrade cost to 38,000 while Pro Kits require 900. Its free tires upgrade uses four common cards while its other three upgrades each use only one card.
