SAFETY | 8 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

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

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

With exception to some rear outward visibility issues, the 2014 Dodge Avenger doesn't disappoint in the category of safety.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gives it a uniform four stars out of five, not only as an overall rating but also for frontal crash, side crash, and rollover safety. And the 2014 Avenger is a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) again this year, even though it achieves just an 'Acceptable' rating (one notch below the top 'Good') in the new and tougher small-overlap frontal test.

All Avenger models include dual front, side and curtain airbags, plus anti-lock brakes, stability control, and active headrests. It doesn't offer either a rear-vew camera or a blind-spot alert system, both options it could use to compensate for the large rear three-quarter pillars that block much of the driver's rearward vision.

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.
