SAFETY | 7 out of 10
'Good,' frontal, side, and rear impact; 'good,' roof strength (sedan only); 'acceptable,' small overlap frontal impact
Top Safety Pick (sedan only)
Four stars overall; four stars frontal, three stars side
The only safety feature not standard among all 200s is the tire pressure monitoring system; the LX model gets by with a tire pressure monitoring warning lamp.
The 2014 Chrysler 200 has some mixed results. If you're sizing it up against key rivals; but for the most part its feature set and crash-test ratings are good; yet it's no standout.
Over the past several years, Chrysler has introduced some advanced-tech safety features like adaptive cruise control, blind-spot detection, adaptive headlamps, and collision mitigation in the larger 300; but you won't find any of those features on the smaller 200.
In the new IIHS small overlap frontal test, it performed well enough ('acceptable') to qualify for the new IIHS Top Safety Pick accolade (that's considering its top 'good' ratings in all other categories).
It hasn't done quite as well in federal testing, where the Chrysler 200 was awarded four stars overall, with four-star scores for frontal impact and three stars for side impact.
Rearward visibility tends to be an issue in the sedan, given the thick rear pillars and rather high beltline.
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 assess this body style.
Safety equipment for the 2014 Chrysler 200 isn't particularly noteworthy, and crash-test ratings are mixed.
