Let’s be honest. When it comes to cars, it’s often more exciting to talk engines than airbags. But that’s not always the case, and especially not when a brand-new award for vehicle safety is on the line.
The Forward Look is pleased to report that the Chrysler 200 Sedan has earned Top Safety Pick+ honors. The accolade, an extenuation of Top Safety Pick award, was developed just this year by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) to recognize vehicles offering what it terms “superior crash protection.” The Chrysler 200 Sedan earned the exclusive Top Safety Pick+ designation—one of only 13 vehicles to do so—because of its performance during several safety tests, including a new IIHS driver-side crash test that subjects 25 percent of a vehicle’s front end to a 40-mph collision with a five-foot-tall rigid barrier.
Combining a number of innovative safety and security features (see below for examples) with outstanding value, a 100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty and a stylish design, the Chrysler 200 Sedan is a vehicle engineered to look good, to last the long haul and, most important, to help keep its occupants safe from harm.
Examples of innovative safety & security features found on the Chrysler 200 Sedan
- Front multistage airbags that deploy with appropriate force based on the severity of the impact
- Side-curtain airbags that provide added protection for all outboard passengers in side-impact collisions or rollover events
- Body and frame foundation built with high-strength steel
- Safety cage specially designed with front and rear crumple zones to absorb and redirect energy away from passengers
- Front active head restraints that move forward and upward in the event of a rear-end collision, decreasing the space between the occupant’s head and the headrest
