Dodge Dart, Avenger, and Chrysler 200 Earn IIHS’s Top Safety Pick

Chrysler 200

Three vehicles from the Chrysler Group have made it to the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety’s list of Top Safety Picks: the Dodge Dart, Dodge Avenger, and Chrysler 200.

This marks the sixth time that the IIHS has recognized the Dodge Avenger and Chrysler 200, which both offer all of their available safety features as standard equipment. While the Dodge Dart can’t make the same claim, as it’s still a relatively new entry to the market, it has still managed to make the list every year it’s been on the market—and if you don’t put much stock in the IIHS’s testing, it also got a 5-star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to boot.

To earn a Top Safety Pick badge, all three vehicles had to achieve the best possible rating of “good” in the moderate-overlap frontal crash test, the side impact test, the roof strength test, and the whiplash test. They also had to earn at least “acceptable” ratings in the new small-overlap front crash test.

Come find the Dart, Avenger, and 200 at Rochester Hills Chrysler.
