The new Dodge Hornet has an aggressive stance that fits its claim to be the fastest vehicle in the compact utility space. The hood has iconic Dodge heat extractors that give the hood a distinctive shape. The front grille is given a mail-slot design, and the rear tail lights run the vehicle's width with the Dodge logo illuminated in the center. These design cues give the Hornet a distinctive look from the front and rear and appeal to all tastes.
The interior design of the Dodge Hornet has been planned around the driver. The center-stacked controls, the display screens, and the air conditioning vents are all angled slightly toward the driver. The car boasts a 31.2cm screen with a digital cluster of instruments for the driver, and the infotainment system runs on an accompanying 26cm screen.
The new Hornet is full of the best in technology. The Uconnect 5 infotainment system is standard in both trims. This Android-based system features a home screen that can be personalized, dual-phone connection, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support, and an in-vehicle Alexa virtual assistant with a natural-sounding voice.
