Last year, Chrysler announced it would be offering more than 150 Mopar parts and accessories on the 2013 Dodge Dart, and we got a look at some of these parts firsthand at the Chicago Auto Show. Showing off all the optional parts at once would surely create a gaudy monstrosity, so Chrysler chose to equip this particular Dart GT with just a handful of Mopar goodies, which still gave the car a nice and tasteful custom look that is available straight from the dealership (and with a full warranty, too).

Decked out in a factory color called Header Orange Clear Coat – also a very appropriate show car hue – this car added exterior styling parts such as the vented, carbon fiber hood, the bolt-on front chin spoiler and a matte black decklid spoiler. Looking inside the car, you'd think the red-accented interior is part of the Mopar parts bin, too, but this is actually what the standard Dart GT cabin will look like when it goes on sale.

"But for those who want even more customization and personalization, Mopar is offering more than 150 quality-tested accessories and performance parts."

Following is a select list of Mopar accessories and performance parts for the all-new 2013 Dodge Dart:

Energy is then transferred from the charging pad to the device battery, utilizing a compatible device-specific case.

In-vehicle router receives 3G broadband Internet, allowing access to social media, maps, e-mail, online games, music and more. Works with Wi-Fi enabled device. Subscription required and sold separately.

Industry-first Electronic Vehicle Tracking System (EVTS): Mopar's system is powered by Guidepoint Systems, the leader in GPS-enabled stolen-vehicle recovery systems. Unlike other vehicle-tracking systems, the Mopar EVTS offers nationwide tracking without a subscription.

      I wish more car companies would offer to modify their cars while maintaining the warranty.

        A spoiler and a cf hood will void your warrantee from exactly zero auto makers. This isn't modified.

      in my opinion, its a helluva lot better looking inside and out than the alternative gelly-bean appliance crap boxes. for what you get for the price in this segment, its nice to see they still have some style in the design. corollas, sentras, and civics look so ugly now. and for those of you hating just because its a dodge...well i think the build quality of dodge and chrysler has improved significantly the last 2 years, and though they were horrible in the 90's and 00's, i think its time for the US market to give them another chance to prove themselves and their product.

      I like it, as far as looks go. I'm digging the orange paint job and carbon fiber accents, I just wish they'd put a bigger engine in it. With all these performance and sport touches, you'll be even more inclined to notice how much it lacks in power.

      I sat in these at the Auto Show, a few different models of Darts. I have to say, compared to the competition, Cruze, Focus, Civic,Sentra, and others. This one I think was the best overall feel just by looks outside and looks and feel inside. The exterior is very pleasing to the eye, unlike some of the others that seem a little off. And the interior felt much more upscale (I compared leather interior trims in all models where possible). It just had more soft touch materials and a better feel all around inside. Even my Dad agreed and he really isn't a fan of Dodge. Like some others have said, I just think the badge is what is hurting this car the most. If it has another badge it would probably be selling like hot cakes.. And on that note, they really could use a smaller logo on the steering wheel. I feel like that wheel is left over from the Dodge caliber :(

      Love that orange color. I hope to see it on many a Dart...or heck, any MOPAR.

        It was a color available on 2011 Challengers (I think it was 2011). I'd love to see it on the Charger. There is (or was) a very similar color available on Wrangler within the last year or two also.

      Why does Chrysler insist on using that damned duct? Now it just looks like a freaking Neon.
