GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn -- The next time you're in the market for a new car, if safety is one of your paramount concerns, a model worth considering is Chrysler. These vehicles are designed with advanced safety and security technology that help keep you safe on the road.
Here's a look at the safety features available for most Chrysler vehicles:
Though you can't see them, advanced multistage front airbags and supplemental side curtain airbags are standard on most vehicles. They will deploy automatically in the event of a head-on or side-impact crash.
Electronic Stability Control (ESC)
Your vehicle's ESC monitors steering input and vehicle motion. It senses when there's a difference between your intended path and the actual path of the vehicle. It then applies selective braking, and if necessary, reduces engine throttle to help guide your vehicle back on to your intended path.
Parksense Rear Park Assist System
If your vehicle is equipped with Chrysler's Parksense Rear Park Assist System, sound waves will be used to help detect nearby objects in and around your vehicle's path when in reverse. In addition, audio-visual indicators will alert you to the proximity of most larger, stationary objects that could be in your way.
Blind Spot Monitoring System
This feature assists you by monitoring the blind spots of your vehicle. A visual indicator in the side mirrors notifies you of a vehicle entering your blind spot area. If you activate your turn signal to change lanes and there is a vehicle in your blind spot at the time, the car will alert you to check your blind spot before switching lanes.
Rear Cross Path Detection
This is an accident avoidance feature that uses strategically placed sensors to detect if vehicles are approaching the rear of your vehicle when backing up.
