2012 Chrysler 200 Safety

8.0
Safety
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.

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

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.
