Dart Adds IIHS Top Safety Rating to Long List of Accolades
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) recently awarded the 2013 Dodge Dart with a Top Safety Rating. This accolade just adds to the many awards the Dart has received, including the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s 5-Star crash rating – the highest score possible.
The 2013 Dodge Dart is leading its class with over 60 available safety features and 68 percent high-strength-steel content. No other car in the Dart’s segment has 10 airbags. The Dart managed to score the best in each of four crash tests used by the IIHS to determine passenger safety. The tests simulated a rollover, rear, side and moderate-overlap frontal impacts.
Not only is the Dart one of the safest vehicles on the road, but it is also one of the most fun to drive. Its performance gives it an agile and smooth ride thanks to its Alfa Romeo roots. No detail is overlooked in the interior either, where the 2013 Dart is loaded with technology and cool gadgets and finished off with exceptional quality materials. Overall, the Dodge Dart is an incredible car with its powerful 2.4L engine and 184 HP, combined with its award-winning safety features.
