Chrysler’s all-new 200 mid-sized sedan has been awarded a perfect five-star overall safety rating by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
In order to achieve the NHTSA’s top rating, a vehicle must earn a five-star rating in each of the agency’s crash tests, including front collision, side-impact and rollover resistance. The Chrysler 200 has already been named a Top Safety Pick+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
“The Chrysler 200’s superior performance in such safety tests validates our continuing efforts to deliver the latest advancements in both passive and active safety technologies,” said Scott Kunselman, Chrysler Group’s Senior Vice President and Head of Vehicle Safety and Regulatory Compliance.
Chrysler credits the 200’s body structure, which is comprised mostly from high-strength steel, for the sedan’s excellent safety results.
In addition to being able to withstand a crash, the 200 also excels in avoiding them altogether. The 200 is available with a Full-speed Forward Collision Warning-Plus system that is capable of bringing the vehicle to a complete stop if it detects an imminent crash.
The 2015 200, which lists from $21,700, is built at Chrysler’s Sterling Heights Assembly Plant.
