IIHS Top Safety Picks: Fiat 500X & Chrysler 200

December 10, 2015 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) today announced the 2016 Chrysler 200 and the all-new 2016 Fiat 500X merit Top Safety Pick+ ratings for 2016.

The 200 mid-size sedan and 500X small crossover also earned the distinction in 2015. Top Safety Pick+ is the highest rating given by the IIHS.

Top Safety Pick+ status is contingent on the availability of AEB technology, provided it achieves ratings of “advanced” or “superior,” according to IIHS protocols.

“These results are a clear indication of where we’re headed,” said Mike Dahl, Head of Vehicle Safety and Regulatory Compliance, FCA-North America. “That this advanced technology is available on these two distinctly different vehicles demonstrates our commitment to continue to incorporate AEB into our vehicle fleet.”

No mainstream auto maker offers the technology in more segments than FCA US LLC. AEB is available in eight FCA US vehicles across five segments:

Full-size SUV (Dodge Durango)
Mid-size SUV (Jeep Grand Cherokee, Jeep Cherokee)
Small SUV/Crossover (Jeep Renegade, Fiat 500X)
Mid-size sedan (Chrysler 200)
Full-size sedan (Chrysler 300, Dodge Charger)

As featured in FCA US LLC vehicles, AEB blends the benefits of radar with the capabilities of camera systems. This affords greater precision.

AEB technology in the Chrysler 200 is known as Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning-Plus. The IIHS gave it a rating of “superior.”

The Fiat 500X system, known as Forward Collision Warning-Plus, earned an “advanced” rating.

The Chrysler 200 and Fiat 500X may be equipped with AEB technology for $31,550 and $28,605, respectively.

IIHS crash tests simulate:

a side impact with a large SUV or pickup truck;
a moderate-offset frontal impact;
a small-offset frontal impact;
roof-deformation consistent with a rollover;
and a rear collision capable of inducing whiplash.

In each, the Chrysler 200 and all-new Fiat 500X recorded the highest-possible score of “good.”
