2015 Chrysler 200

One of the most exciting vehicles to be featured at our Tulsa and Oklahoma City-area Chrysler dealer this year is the 2015 Chrysler 200. Redesigned from the ground up, the midsize sedan has been greatly improved in many areas, including safety. In addition to a number of high-quality standard features, Chrysler modernized the 200 sedan with new available features that can help prevent accidents from occurring.

As a reward for their efforts, the 2015 Chrysler 200 was given a Top Safety Pick+ rating by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

What is the IIHS?

Formed back in 1959, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) is a non-profit group made up of auto insurers. They put new vehicles through a barrage of crash tests, which they are always refining. The results of these tests are used to help consumers find safe vehicles and put pressure on automakers to release safer vehicles. In addition, the crash results are used by the insurers themselves to set rates; choosing a vehicle with a high safety rating could help you cut down on insurance payments.

The Top Safety Pick+ Award

The IIHS has several main tests: small and moderate-overlap front, side, roof, and head restraints / seatbelts. After passing through each test, the car is given a score ranging from “Poor” to “Good.” The IIHS also looks to see if the vehicle has any type of front crash prevention technology.

After testing, the 2015 Chrysler 200 was given scores of “Good” in all IIHS tests. This includes the very tough small-overlap front crash test that simulates a vehicle colliding with a pole at the front corner. Many automakers have had trouble with this test. Even the previous generation’s 2014 Chrysler 200 received a lower score of “Acceptable” in the test.

Available on many 2015 Chrysler 200 trims is the SafetyTec package. This includes a forward collision warning system with autobrake. Thanks to this feature, the 200 earned a superior rating from the IIHS for front crash protection and the Top Safety Pick+ award.
