Edmunds' Inside Line
With its bold, brash looks, the 2014 Dodge Charger is one of the safest sedans on the road. A rearview camera system, active cruise control, and blind-spot monitors are available in addition to all the expected standard items. Front-seat active head restraints were added to the Dodge Charger's list of safety features two years ago. And electronic stability control, full-length side-curtain airbags, and a driver's side knee bag remain included in all Chargers.
The Charger has earned a five-star overall score in federal testing, and it's been an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Pick in the past - but since there's no small-overlap crash-test data, it doesn't merit the Top Safety Pick award this year. The Charger has earned top 'good' ratings in all categories of IIHS testing.
In the more stringent federal NCAP tests introduced last year, the Charger has achieved five stars overall (out of five), with a top score in side-impact protection and four stars for frontal impact.
The 2014 Dodge Charger offers excellent safety that goes along nicely with the assertive look and feel.
