For the 2010 model year, Chrysler Group LLC products make up nearly 15 percent of the total vehicles named Top Safety Picks by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
Specifically, the IIHS selected the 2010 Jeep Patriot, 2010 Chrysler Sebring, 2010 Dodge Avenger and 2010 Dodge Journey for the awards. This makes two years running for the Chrysler Sebring, Dodge Avenger and Dodge Journey as IIHS safety picks. The awards are another example of Chrysler Group LLC’s commitment to both safety and quality.
“Chrysler showed the most improvement of any automaker for 2010,” said IIHS President Adrian Lund. “These Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge models are part of an elite group that afford the best overall crash protection and have electronic stability control, which can help keep drivers out of crashes altogether.”
In addition to ESC with traction control, all four vehicles include Brake Assist and Antilock Braking System, driver and front-passenger active head restraints, front seat-mounted side airbags and advanced multi-stage front airbags.
All four vehicles also include the company’s new active head restraint system for front-seat occupants. This system allows head rests to move forward with the seat occupant’s head during a rear-end collision, thus reducing the space between the head rest and the person’s head.
