2013 Chrysler 200 Safety

8.0
On Safety
In models like the Chrysler 300 it's rolled out some advanced-tech safety features like adaptive cruise control, blind-spot detection, adaptive headlamps, and collision mitigation, but you won't find any of those features on the smaller 200. Still, the 2013 Chrysler 200 does come with all the expected standard safety items, as well as top ratings pretty much across the board, from both U.S. agencies.

The federal government has tested the Chrysler 200 sedan and awarded it four stars overall, with four-star scores for frontal impact and three stars for side impact. Also, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has given it top 'good' scores in all areas, earning Top Safety Pick status. And in the new IIHS small overlap frontal test, it performed well enough ('acceptable') to qualify for the new IIHS Top Safety Pick+ accolade.

As for the 200 Convertible, it lacks the curtain airbags of the sedan, but it does include all the other safety equipment from the sedan. There aren't any current crash-test results to size up its safety, though.

Feature-wise, the Chrysler 200 is no standout; but its safety ratings have been solid.

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, either.
