SAFETY | 8 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

'Good,' frontal offset; 'good,' side impact; 'good,' roof strength 'Acceptable,' small overlap frontal
IIHS

Four stars overall; four stars frontal; four stars side impact
NHTSA




Safety has been an areas where the 2013 Dodge Avenger doesn't disappoint. It's been an IIHS Top Safety Pick, and it comes with curtain airbags and stability control.

The Avenger has done well in crash tests; it's earned four-star scores overall in federal-government NCAP tests (with four-star scores for both frontal and side impact tests); and it earns the new Top Safety Pick+ status from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS)--even though it achieves an 'acceptable' rating in the new small-overlap frontal test.

All Avenger models include dual front, side and curtain airbags, plus anti-lock brakes, stability control, and active headrests.

There's one pretty serious issue, however; the roofline and thick rear pillar can block visibility, and there's no rearview camera or blind-spot monitor.

Conclusion

Good safety ratings, a sound structure, and a good set of features rank the 2013 Dodge Avenger as a safe pick among mid-size sedans.

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.
