VIDEO: 2015-MY Chrysler 200 Test Drive
The 2015 model-year Chrysler 200 has earned a five-star overall safety rating – the highest possible score – from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The mid-size sedan scored five stars in tests evaluating frontal collisions, side-impacts simulating a two-vehicle collision, and side-impacts simulating a single-vehicle collision with a pole. In the rollover resistance evaluation, the car scored four stars.
Earlier this year, the Chrysler 200 captured a Top Safety Pick+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
Among the active safety systems available on the 2015 Chrysler 200 is Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning-Plus, which combines camera and radar technologies. This feature provides alerts and autonomous braking. Under certain circumstances, the system slows or brings the car to a full stop when a frontal collision appears imminent.
The 2015 Chrysler 200 boasts 60 safety and security features, including Electronic Park Brake (EPB) with SafeHold. Offered as standard equipment, EPB with SafeHold automatically activates the 200’s parking brake if the driver’s seat belt is unlatched and his or her door is opened while forward or reverse gears are engaged. This feature is designed to prevent rollaway situations.
Other standard and available features include electronic stability control (ESC), electronic roll mitigation, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, ParkSense rear backup sensors, ParkView rear backup camera, blind-spot monitoring, Rear Cross Path Detection and LATCH child seat anchors.
