Top Safety Pick

Five stars overall; four stars, frontal; five stars, side

Every change contributed to improved outward visibility.

Visibility (or lack thereof) won’t be a deal breaker, but Chrysler hasn’t exactly turned it into a strength.

The 2012 Chrysler 300 has an excellent set of safety credentials--including all the usual airbags and electronic traction controls. A package of safety technology on higher trim levels adds on lane-departure warnings, blind-spot monitors, a forward-collision warning system, front and rear parking sensors, and adaptive cruise control.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has awarded top 'good' ratings in frontal, side, and rear impact, as well as in roof strength; so the 300 earns the IIHS Top Safety Pick rating for 2012. It's also been rated five stars overall from the federal government, with four stars for frontal impact and a top score in side-impact protection.

Chrysler says it's paid extra attention to visibility from inside the 300, and it's evident. With its last redesign, last year, the 300 got slimmer roof pillars, and the larger glass areas mean the view to the rear corners in particular is much wider.

Conclusion

With top-notch ratings, a good list of features, and available all-wheel drive, the 300 and 300C have a compelling safety set.

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.
