Edmunds' Inside Line
There's no reason to hesitate about the safety that looks so bold and brash; the Charger has earned a five-star overall score in federal testing, and it's been an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Pick. And if you're willing to pay a little extra you can get some impressive active-safety items.
The Charger has earned top 'good' ratings in all categories of IIHS testing. And 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.
A rearview camera system, active cruise control, and blind-spot monitors are available in addition to all the expected standard items. 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.
While driving some versions of the Dodge Charger might require some restraint, this sedan's protection shouldn't give you any cause for hesitation.
