Edmunds' Inside Line



The 2012 Dodge Charger might look bold and brash, but its occupant protection is among the best in its class. And with its high airbag count, and high-tech safety grafts like active cruise control, rearview camera, and blind-spot monitors, it has enough to give safety-minded spouses the green light.

Front-seat active head restraints were added to the Dodge Charger's list of safety features last year. And electronic stability control, full-length side-curtain airbags, and a driver's side knee bag remain included in all Chargers. And in addition to active cruise and the blind-spot system, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, and rear cross-path detection are all on offer.

In the more stringent federal NCAP tests introduced last year, the Charger has achieved five stars overall (out of five), with a top score in side-impact protection and four stars for frontal impact. The 2012 Charger is also an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Pick, with top 'good' ratings in all categories.

Conclusion

The Charger has a good safety record; your cautious better half might have trouble resisting.

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.
