  • Advanced Airbags – Front multistage airbags use sensors to determine the size of front-seat passengers inflating at different rates as necessary to prevent injury to small occupants. Side outboard airbags cover the windows and protect second and third-row passengers from injury.
  • Enhanced Accident Response (EAR) – The EAR system is activated in the event of a crash, automatically turning on interior lights, unlocking doors, and cutting off the flow of gas to the engine.
  • Unibody Construction – The Chrysler is engineered with tougher materials for a more rigid cabin that is flanked by special crumple zones that are designed to fold when in a collision, reducing the force felt by the passengers.
