Chrysler 200 is IIHS’s Top Safety Pick

Chrysler 200At Suburban Chrysler, we are thrilled to let car buyers know that the Chrysler 200 sedan has won Top Safety Pick honors from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. This important award recognizes vehicles that offer “superior crash protection.”

The 200 sedan is one of just 13 vehicles to earn the award this year. It is subjected to several safety tests, including a new driver-side crash test in which a quarter of the car’s front end collides with a 5-foot-tall barrier.

What’s so safe about the 200 sedan, other than its overall ability to win this Top Safety Pick award?

A host of things. The Chrysler 200 sedan has:

  • Front active head restraints that move forward and upward during a rear-end collision. This leaves less room for the driver’s or passenger’s head to whip back and forth against the head rest.
  • High-strength steel as the foundation for its body and frame.
  • A specially designed safety cage created with crumple zones in the front and back to redirect crash energy away from occupants.
  • Multistage airbags in the front that use only the force needed to protect passengers, depending on the severity of the crash.
  • Side-curtain airbags that offer protection in side-impact crashes or rollovers.

While it doesn’t protect passengers, the theft deterrent included in the Chrysler 200 sedan does protect your car against unauthorized operation—thanks to a Sentry Key that allows the engine to start only with a properly encoded key—and lets you know about attempted theft. The doors, trunk and ignition are protected against unauthorized entry.

Of course, the Chrysler 200 sedan has a 100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty. The starting MSRP is $18,995.
