FIAT 500X - Springfield, MO
The FIAT 500X is ready for any adventure.

The 2016 FIAT 500X has earned the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s top honor, being named a Top Safety Pick+ for the first time ever. In fact, the prestigious Top Safety Pick+ award has only been awarded to one other car (the Chrysler 200) in the FCA lineup.

The 2016 FIAT 500X earned the best-possible rating of “Good” in the side impact with a large SUV or pickup truck, moderate-offset frontal impact, small-offset frontal impact, roof-crush consistent with a rollover, and rear collision capable of inducing whiplash crash tests.

Additionally, only vehicles equipped with a forward collision mitigation system qualify for the Top Safety Pick+ designation. The 2016 FIAT 500X’s available Forward Collision Warning-Plus technology has earned a score of “Advanced” from IIHS, earning the 500X the Top Safety Pick+ designation.

“Delivering such features for less than $30,000 in a vehicle segment not known for such sophistication is clear evidence of our commitment to the democratization of advanced safety technology,” said Scott Kunselman, Senior Vice President – Vehicle Safety and Regulatory Compliance in a statement.

2014 Dodge Dart and Avenger Earn Top Safety Pick

The Insurance Institute of Highway Safe (IIHS) runs a series of tests on vehicles across the market in order to determine how safe they are. This year the 2014 Dodge Dart and Avenger have earned a Top Safety Pick thanks to their advanced safety technology and build.

Top Safety Pick Plus ratings are not easy to receive. Each vehicle must earn a rating of “good” in four different areas: moderate-overlap frontal crash, side impact, roof strength, and whiplash. “In addition, a 2014 Top Safety Pick must rate ‘acceptable’ or bet in the IIHS’ new small-overlap front crashworthiness evaluation,” says Chrysler Media.

Dodge has been making safe vehicles for a long time, and it shows with its reputation. This marks the sixth time that the Dodge Avenger has been awarded the Top Safety Pick in the mid-size sedan category, and the Dodge Dart has been on the list for compact sedans since it came out in 2012.

Available in the Dodge Dart for safety is a lot of helpful assets including: advanced-airbag technology, ParkView back-up camera, Rear Cross Path detection, and Blind-Spot Monitoring.
