Front-seat active head restraints have been added to the Dodge Charger's list of safety features, which already include electronic stability control, full-length side-curtain airbags, and a driver's side knee bag. Also available are adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, rear cross-path detection, and blind-spot monitoring.
The 2010 Dodge Charger achieved top five-star ratings from the federal government, under its former system. However tests and ratings have been revised for 2011 and it hasn't yet been tested under those. The Charger has been a less impressive performer in the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) tests; the 2010 model had achieved only 'marginal' results in side impact as well as rear impact.
