2012 Chrysler 300 Earns Five-Star Safety Rating

2012 chrysler 300
The 2012 Chrysler 300 sedan is the latest vehicle to join the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's five-star safety club. It earned an overall five stars out of five in NHTSA's crash tests. 

The Chrysler 300's composite score was composed of mostly five stars across the different areas of testing, but it did earn four stars in the driver safety column and in the rollover test. The sedan earned fives in frontal, side barrier and side pole crashes. 

NHTSA recently adopted more stringent guidelines and rigorous testing practices, so it's harder for vehicles to get five stars. Chrysler's largest sedan is the ninth vehicle to be awarded NHTSA's highest combined star rating for the 2012 model year. Other five-star vehicles include the Cadillac CTS, Cadillac SRX, Chevrolet Camaro, Chevrolet Sonic, Saab 9-4X, Toyota Camry, Volkswagen Passat and Volvo S60.
