2013 Dodge Avenger Safety

8.0
On Safety

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.

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.

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.
