About a month ago, we showed you a tiny glimpse of what Dodge's new compact was going to look like. Now we have footage and a full view of the 2013 Dodge Dart cruising around and sitting in a parking lot hitting us with its best blue steel impression. Using the same light bar across the back, the Dart tries to bring the same sporty and aggressive look from the Challenger and Charger to a more mainstream family option.

Dodge has announced that buyers will have the option between 2.0-liter, 16-valve four, 1.4-liter MultiAir turbo, and 2.4-liter MultiAir Tigershark engines. We'll get more details when the Dart makes its full debut at the Detroit Auto Show this week, but it already looks like a huge improvement over the Neon or the Avenger
