IIHS Names 2013 Dodge Dart as Top Safety Pick

October 05, 2012

The all-new Dodge Dart has been named a 2012 Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), according to a Chrysler announcement on Oct. 3.

The 2013-MY Dart received the maximum possible rating of "good" in each of the four crash tests used by the IIHS to evaluate occupant protection, Chrysler said. The IIHS test looks at rollover, rear, side and moderate-overlap front impacts.

“We had high expectations for the Dart and our engineers delivered,” said Reid Bigland, Dodge-brand president and CEO and head of U.S. sales. 

The Dart’s safety features include: high-strength-steel that comprises 68% of the car’s body; 10 standard air bags; electronic stability control (ESC); electronic roll mitigation; traction control; standard four-wheel, four-channel anti-lock disc brakes; electronic brake-force distribution; blind-spot monitoring; and rear cross-path detection.
