Beats MusicIf you love music and Chevrolet vehicles, then Chevy has some good news for you. At the recent South by Southwest conference, the automaker announced it would stream Beats Music service in some of its models that will feature AppShop.

The Chevrolet Cruze, Sonic and Volt: Small, but Safe

After receiving Five-Star Overall Vehicle Scores for Safety and named 2012 Top Safety Picks by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the Chevrolet Cruze and the Chevrolet Volt have made Forbes’ List of Ten Safest Small Cars.

Oh, and go ahead and add the Chevrolet Sonic to the list as well.

All three Chevys come standard with OnStar –the first six months for the Cruze and Sonic and the first three years for the Volt.

The OnStar system in all three vehicles includes Automatic Crash Response, a feature with the ability to connect to a specially-trained Emergency Advisor upon impact, automatically request emergency responders to a precise GPS location and, even, transmit important crash data like rollover status or maximum velocity at impact.

The Cruze, Sonic and Volt also feature frontal-side impact airbags as well as front knee air bags for the driver and front passenger.

The Chevrolet Cruze is a compact car with a crush resistance roof, a high-strength steel safety cage, Rear Park Assist and ten standard airbags. Now that is compact.

And, the Chevrolet Sonic – it is the first and only subcompact car to feature ten standard airbags.

Known for its efficiency and innovation, the Chevrolet Volt features eight standard airbags, including head and curtain side-impact airbags for outboard front and rear passengers.

There is nothing to fear when it comes to the Cruze, Sonic and Volt.
