WASHINGTON — The 2016 Dodge Dart compact sedan earned the highest five-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The 2016 Dart earned five stars in the front and side crash tests and four stars in the rollover crash test.

It will roll into Dodge dealerships this fall.

Standard safety equipment on the 2016 Dart includes 10 airbags, electronic stability control, antilock brakes, traction control and a rearview camera.
