Comparing the neon to the new dart!

I was talking to my cousin and he asked how my Dart was holding up and this guy said, "You mean your Neon?" This sent me raging that he would compare it to the Neon since the new Darts are base on the Alfa Romero Giulietta. I got into this heated conversation, showing him pictures of the Neon and the Dart, even showing him my dart. Can anyone see a resemblance between the 2?

Many Neon owners like to believe that the Dart is simply what the Neon would have looked like if it was never discontinued. This is a huge knock against the Dart as the Neon has very little going for it looks wise. Anyone with an impartial set of eyes can clearly see that the only thing the two cars have in common is that they have 4 doors and 4 wheels.

2 totally different cars, I doubt Dodge had the Neon in mind when developing the Dart.

x2

I don't think "comparing" them would be worth while as there's a huge gap between when the Neon stopped being produced to when the Dart started to be. Nearly 10 years.

Has it been that long already time just go by fast and so should the neon. With the new dart in place im sure dodge will gain a new reputation in this segment. Cant beat the price.

too many differences to be considered the same. the neon has a tried and tested engine set in it. they have neons in the 12s and faster. i dont see that happening untill the dart has some serious weight loss and some actual vendor support. bolt ons are fine, but the dart really needs some real tunes. the 2.0 and 2.4 are left back because its easier to work on the 1.4L.
