The last time we had some news to send your way about the 2013 Dodge Dart, we were using it to celebrate Earth Day in style. But as much as we can praise it for all its eco-friendly qualities, we here at Lithia Chrysler Jeep Dodge of Grants Pass know better than anyone that safety comes first in any new or used car. Lucky for all of us, the Dart has you covered.

Just recently, the 2013 Dart finally made its way to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Once there, it was thoroughly evaluated in respect to how it performed across four different crash tests that ranged from rollover to moderate-overlap frontal impact. Only a select few models each year manage to perform so well in these tests that they manage to drive away with top honors. So when the 2013 Dart was deemed one of the elite few, we couldn't have been prouder of this sporty sedan.

"We are very pleased that the Dart has earned a Top Safety Pick+ designation," says Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO of Dodge. "In addition to its solid structure - the Dart's 68-percent high-strength-steel content ratio is one of the highest in the industry - the Dart boasts more than 60 safety and security features. They include 10 standard air bags, which is unsurpassed in the compact car segment."1

Did we mention that it also picked up a 5-star overall rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration? It just doesn't get any safer than that.

So if you'd like to learn more about the class-leading safety that comes standard on this beauty, feel free to visit the experts in our car parts department at our dealership here in Grants Pass, OR. After all, they don't give these awards to just any old car.
