Edmunds' Inside Line



The Dodge Avenger has a pretty good record for safety, and we anticipate that the 2011 model will probably make some improvements in both occupant protection and accident avoidance.

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.

Conclusion

The 2011 Dodge Charger adds some important new features that should make it a better safety pick.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
