2013 Dodge Dart: Top Safety Pick by Insurance Institute for Highway Safety


If safety is a concern, then the Dodge Dart may have just gone to the top of the list for possible purchases.  The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety put the sedan through their tests and gave the Dart their “Top Safety Pick+.”

The 2013 Dodge Dart earned the maximum possible rating in all of the crash tests it underwent.  There are four tests in the whole scheme to see how protected occupants are in the event of an accident.  That includes a recreation of a rollover, rear, side, and moderate-overlap frontal impacts.  The final score for these tests were “good.”  Good enough to earn a 5-star overall rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

As any company would be, Dodge is proud to see their Dart come home with a good report card to pin to the refrigerator.  Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO of Dodge Brand, gleamed with pride about the results.  “We are very pleased that the Dart has earned a Top Safe Pick+ designation.  In additional to its solid structure- the Dart’s 68-percent high-strength-steel content ratio is one of the highest in the industry- the Dart boasts more than 60 safety and security features.  They include 10 standard air bags, which is unsurpassed in the compact car segment.”

Like Tim Kuniskis said about, the Dodge Dart is very concerned with the safety of the driver and occupants alike.  With over 60 standard safety features in place on the Dart, it’s one of the safest vehicles in its class.
