The Caliber was awarded one star out of four for pedestrian protection, with most elements of the bonnet and front bumper awarded zero points.

The Caliber dropped a point for adult occupancy protection as front airbags failed to stop the driver and front passenger impacting on the steering wheel and dashboard respcetively. Elements of the dashboard also posed a risk to front passengers´ legs.

The Caliber scores maximum points on side impact and pole tests.

The Dodge dropped a point on child protection as there were insufficient warnings to disable the front airbag if a childseat was placed in the front seat.
