200 is “Top Safety Pick +”

by David Zatz on

2015 200

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has named the 2015 Chrysler 200 a 2014 Top Safety Pick +, its highest rating, when the optional front crash prevention is ordered.

“The 200 aced the challenging small overlap front test with a good rating in every measurement category,” said IIHS President Adrian Lund. “Chrysler should also be commended for offering forward collision warning with autonomous braking on this mainstream midsize car. Our research shows that these systems are effective in preventing some kinds of crashes from happening altogether.”

IIHS testing simulates a side impact with a large SUV or pickup truck, front moderate-offset impact, roof-crush consistent with a rollover, a rear collision capable of inducing whiplash, and a small-offset frontal impact; it also has a crash prevention evaluation.  In each of the tests, the 2015 Chrysler 200 recorded the highest ratings.

The car also has a standard nine-speed automatic transmission. It lists at $22,695 (including destination) for the base model, and is made in Sterling Heights, Michigan, a relatively quick trip up Van Dyke from Detroit itself.
