Chrysler 200C managed to be awarded with 5-star overall rating during the most recent U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) crash tests.
The front-wheel-drive (FWD) version merits five stars. The all-wheel-drive Chrysler 200 has not been rated. For those who don’t know, five stars is the highest possible safety rating given by NHTSA.
The mid-size sedan also scored five stars in each of the crash test tests conducted by NHTSA. They simulate: a frontal collision, side-impact in a two-vehicle collision, side-impact in a single-vehicle collision with a pole or tree.
Passive safety systems, such as a vehicle’s body structure, help mitigate the effects of a crash. More than 60 percent of the Chrysler 200’s body structure consists of high-strength steel, which helps the vehicle maintain its integrity during collisions.
Active safety systems, such as Full-speed Forward Collision Warning-Plus, help drivers avoid crashes. Among the Chrysler 200’s 60 available safety and security features, Full-speed Forward Collision Warning-Plus benefits from sensor-fusion technology, which combines a camera with a radar sensor to deliver greater object-detection precision.
Full-speed Forward Collision Warning-Plus provides alerts, autonomous braking and, under certain circumstances, slows or brings the 2017 Chrysler 200 to a full stop when a frontal collision appears imminent.
