Brown Motors New Car Advice: Compact Cars

According to the old maxim, Americans don’t like small cars. We buy trucks by the truckload and midsize sedans more than any other car segment. But because of gas prices, the tough economy, or both, the compact segment is growing.

If you want good driving dynamics, high-tech interior features and good gas mileage, you have choices for small cars at Brown Motors.  Sedan or hatchback — economy or performance — you can have it your way!


Ford Focus

Spend some time in the current Focus, and you’ll understand what small cars can be; it’s fun, attractive, well-equipped, but also affordable.  Safety-wise, the Focus holds strong; it’s one of the few compact sedans to have earned both a five-star NCAP Overall Score and IIHS Top Safety Pick status. Brown Motors offers the 2014 Focus in 6 fuel efficient models getting up to 37 mpg hwy.

The Focus skips the no-frills small-car image entirely, and it looks good in all of its guises, whether as a four-door sedan or a five-door hatchback. The current lineup includes one of the hottest budget-performance models of the year–the Focus ST. But it does tend to look the best dressed in Titanium trim, where a set of coordinated details give the design some ‘pop.’

You’ll be amazed at all that Focus has to offer inside. “When it comes to luxury and entertainment features, Focus goes well beyond state of the art,” says The hatchback model is a great choice for the practically minded, with 23.8 cubic feet of space with the 60/40-split rear seats up and 44.8 cubic feet with them folded down.

Dodge Dart

The Dodge Dart gets Chrysler back into the compact sedan game, and it does so with more than a little attitude and rakish design. Instantly distinctive on the road, the new Dart is one of the roomiest entries among compact four-door sedans with mid-size interior space. You can have the Dodge Dart your way at Brown Motors with over 100,000 combinations available. The Dart gets up to 41 mpg highway but has power that gives passion for the road. You will be impressed when you see the Dart. Unmistakable style in and out, it was named one of Ward’s 10 best interiors for 2012.

The Dart has achieved what’s essentially a bullseye in U.S. crash-test ratings–with top five-star ratings overall from the federal government and Top Safety Pick status from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The car comes standard with 10 airbags, along with the usual suite of electronic safety systems and also both blind-spot alert and cross-traffic detection, which are new to the compact segment.

Brown Motors has a great selection of compact cars to choose from. Come visit us today for a test drive!
