It’s easy to think that safety isn’t a priority when it comes to sports cars. After all, a sporty muscle car isn’t likely to be the family vehicle taking your kids to school, and most buyers are interested in the exciting drive experience over the safety features. But Dodge automakers understand that safety is always a priority, and doesn’t have to come at the expense of the fun, excitement, and cool factor of a sports car. Thanks to a recent safety rating, it’s become clear that their dedication to safety has paid off – the 2017 Dodge Challenger has earned the highest safety rating possible from the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

The NHTSA has awarded the popular Dodge muscle car a five-star safety rating, the highest they offer, after a series of crash tests. The newest Dodge Challenger passed tests simulating collisions with other vehicles as well as stationary objects, in this case a pole, with flying colors. But with the body made up of almost 60% high-strength steel and side-guard door beams to add protection, it’s no wonder the 2017 Dodge Challenger held up well to the simulated crashes. But that’s just the beginning of the elements that make the 2017 Dodge Challenger a safe option. The new sports car comes with over 70 available safety features, including Forward Collision Warning, front and rear side-curtain airbags, Rear Cross Path detection, and much more.
