The editors of the influential U.S. car buyers' guide, Kelley Blue Book's (www.kbb.com), have named the new Dodge Dart and Fiat 500 as two of its "10 Coolest New Cars Under $18,000 ", making Chrysler Group the only manufacturer to have two vehicles in the list. The all-new Dodge Dart topped the list outright with the FIAT 500 in third spot. The FIAT 500 topped KBB's list of cool cars in 2011.
The cool car list is judged on two main criteria: How much fun a car is to drive and also how much fun it is to own. The editors freely admit that the criteria are very subjective but as experts in the field of both vehicle reviews and ownership, nobody is better qualified to gauge a car's "cool factor" than the editors at Kelley Blue Book's kbb.com.
"The Dodge Dart's enticing combination of style, performance, features and value have earned it the top spot in our 2012 coolest cars list," said Jack R. Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst for Kelley Blue Book's kbb.com. Based on the Alfa Giulietta platform and mechanicals, the Dodge Dart sets new dynamic, technological and personalisation standards.
