ELIZABETH CITY, N.C. – Last week the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) announced their top safety picks for 2016. We’re very proud to say that the 2016 Chrysler 200 was awarded an IIHS Top Safety Pick and rating.
This is the highest rating given by the IIHS. The 2016 Chrysler 200 was rewarded IIHS Top Safety Pick and ratings likely because of the Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) technology. The vehicle locked-in the highest possible scores in every IIHS crashworthiness test.
The IIHS test simulate many different situations including:
- A side impact with a large SUV or pickup truck
- A moderate-offset frontal impact
- A small-offset frontal impact
- Roof-deformation consistent with rollover
- A rear collision capable of causing whiplash
In the Chrysler 200 the AEB technology is known as Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning-Plus and was given an overall rating of “superior.” The technology combines the benefits of radar with the capabilities of camera systems. Together they achieve great precision in safety technologies.
The FCA US LLC offers AEB technology in more models than any other automaker. Right now you can get AEB in the following vehicles:
- Dodge Durango
- Jeep Grand Cherokee
- Jeep Cherokee
- Jeep Renegade
- Chrysler 200
- Chrysler 300
- Dodge Charger
