16. Dodge Challenger
Right alongside the Camaro is another pony car, and we’re not surprised it’s the Dodge Challenger. The pony car that boasts the most power in the industry in the Demon package is sure to have some sort of fatalities with that much horsepower underneath the hood. According to research done by iSeeCars, the Challenger is among one of the highest fatality-prone vehicles on the road. What’s shocking is that the Challenger did score high marks in terms of crash-test results. But even a positive crash test score can’t protect the driver against speed.
Sports cars traditionally put acceleration above all else, which is why drivers tend to push the limits. The Challenger is above all else a high powered sports car. When it comes to choosing a potential first car, the Challenger might be a mistake. The sheer combination of speed and style seems to push younger drivers to participate in more risky behavior, and that means collisions. Dodge has implemented a good number of safety features into the Challenger. But safety features only go so far when the vehicle is being pushed to the limit.
