AUBURN HILLS, Mich., Dec. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

  o Dodge Dart, Avenger and Chrysler 200 sedans score "good" ratings in four
    key IIHS tests
  o Sixth time IIHS has commended Dodge Avenger and Chrysler 200 sedans
  o All safety features available on Avenger and 200 sedans are standard
    equipment
  o Dodge Dart lauded by IIHS every year it's been on market
  o Dodge Dart also has 5-star safety rating from National Highway Traffic
    Safety Administration

The 2014 Dodge Dart, Dodge Avenger and Chrysler 200 sedans have achieved Top
Safety Pick ratings from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS).

The announcement, made today, marks the sixth time the IIHS has commended the
Avenger and 200 mid-size sedans. Meanwhile, the insurance industry
organization has hailed the Dart compact sedan each year since it arrived on
the market in 2012.

All three vehicles feature significant advanced-technology steel content,
which enhances structural integrity. The Dart's 68 percent content ratio of
high-strength steel is among the highest in the industry.

The first Chrysler Group product to utilize a vehicle architecture inspired by
alliance partner Fiat S.p.A., the Dart also boasts a 5-star safety rating
based on crash tests performed by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration.

To achieve a 2014 IIHS Top Safety Pick, a vehicle must achieve a rating of
"good" in each of the following tests:

  o moderate-overlap frontal crash
  o side impact
  o roof strength
  o whiplash

In addition, a 2014 Top Safety Pick must rate "acceptable" or better in the
IIHS' new small-overlap front crashworthiness evaluation.

The Dodge Dart, Avenger and Chrysler 200 sedans each scored "good" ratings in
moderate-offset frontal crash, side impact, roof strength and whiplash. They
were rated "acceptable" in the new small-overlap frontal crash test.

The Dart features 10 standard-equipment, advanced-technology airbags – a total
unsurpassed in its segment.

The acclaimed compact was engineered with a class-leading total of more than
60 safety and security features. In addition to its solid structure and 10
standard air bags, the Dart features an available ParkView back-up camera,
Blind-Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path detection, which alerts drivers to
traffic that approaches the vehicle's rear from a 90-degree angle.

All available safety features on the Avenger and 200 sedans are standard
equipment, including supplemental side-curtain airbags for front and rear
outboard occupants.
