SAFETY | 8 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

'Good,' frontal, side, and rear impact; 'good,' roof strength (sedan only); Top Safety Pick (sedan only)

The only safety feature not standard among all 200s is the tire pressure monitoring system; the LX model gets by with a tire pressure monitoring warning lamp.
Motor Trend



Chrysler has been rivaling some top European automakers with the safety features in its latest minivans and SUVs, but many of the latest high-tech safety features don't make the cut for the 200.

Dual front, side and curtain airbags are standard on all 2012 Chrysler 200 models, as are anti-lock brakes, traction and stability control, and active headrests. Rearward visibility tends to be an issue in the sedan, given the thick rear pillars and rather high beltline, but you won't find a rearview camera or blind-spot detection on the options list.

Overall, the 200 Convertible lacks the curtain airbags of the sedan, but it does include all the other safety equipment from the sedan.

While the federal government still hasn't tested the Chrysler 200--and it probably won't, as Chrysler will replace it with an all-new model next year--the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has given it top 'good' scores in all areas--and thus, its Top Safety Pick designation.

Conclusion

The Chrysler 200 lineup promises good occupant protection, even though its feature list is no standout.

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.
