Fiat Chrysler has plans to kill off the Chrysler 200 (along with the Dodge Dart), but the mid-size sedan will be sticking around for at least another couple of years. As such, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has tested the car in its 2016 model year configuration, giving it a five-star overall safety rating, Edmunds reports.
The NHTSA says the front-wheel drive 2016 200 earned five stars in the front and side crash tests and four stars in the rollover crash test. All-wheel drive versions of the 200 were also tested but only partially, receiving five stars in the side crash test and four stars in the rollover crash test.
As Edmunds points out, the 2016 200 is available with eight airbags as standard including driver and passenger knee airbags. A rearview camera is also now standard on 2016 Chrysler 200 Limited and 200S models, while blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-path detection are available on the Limited.
In adition to receiving five stars in the front, side and rollover crash tests, the 2016 Chrysler 200 was awarded with the NHTSA’s Top Safety Pick+ distinction, which awards cars that receive the bets-possible rating of ‘good’ in all of its tests.
