2006 Dodge Neon replacement

The new small Dodge will be part of the European lauch of the brand.
Why Mercedes decided to sell Dodge cars in europe is beyong me.
I just don't get it. Don't they have enough trouble selling Chryslers?
Dodge is a completely unnown name over there. They will have to start
everything from zero.

But this picture shows the new direction for Dodge cars: hatchbacks!!!
That's right. And that will be the main difference from now on between Chryslers and Dodges.
This new compact is based on the next generation Mitsubishi Lancer platform. Using a 2.4 Liter Mitsubishi engine.
A big step up from the rough 2.4Liter from Chrysler.
That same platform will also be used for the all new redesigned PT Cruiser.
