Chrysler Group LLC announced today that the 2010 Chrysler Sebring and 2010 Dodge Avenger have earned the 2009 Top Safety Pick rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). We are proud to receive the highest possible ratings from IIHS for the Chrysler Sebring and Dodge Avenger, said Scott Kunselman, Senior Vice President Engineering, Chrysler Group LLC. These sought-after achievements highlight Chryslers leadership in safety and security technology and occupant protection.
When it comes to safety and security, the 2010 Chrysler Sebring and 2010 Dodge Avenger employ a two-fold approach: passive features, including pre-tensioning seat belt retractors and supplemental side-curtain air bags, are combined with accident-avoidance features, including responsive steering, braking, handling and Electronic Stability Control (ESC).
A vehicle that earns the Top Safety Pick designation provides the best overall protection in the three most common kinds of crashes, said Adrian Lund, President Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Top-level crash-test performance plus electronic stability control to help keep drivers out of crashes are the tough criteria needed to earn this award.
Available safety equipment on the 2010 Chrysler Sebring and Dodge Avenger includes ESC with traction control, Brake Assist and ABS, driver and front-passenger active head restraints, front seat-mounted side airbags and advanced multi-stage front airbags. The two vehicles also are equipped with Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren (LATCH) for child safety seats.
