Chevrolet Offers Seven Models with 5-Star Overall Vehicle Scores for Safety

Chevrolet offers seven 2014 model year vehicles that have earned a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score for safety from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. That’s more than any other automotive brand can claim.

The seven vehicles to earn a 5-Star Overall Score in the NHTSA’s New Car Assessment Program were the Chevrolet Sonic, Cruze, Volt, Impala, Traverse, Camaro Coupe, and the Silverado 1500 Crew Cab. Even more impressive is the fact that the Sonic is the first and only car in the subcompact class to earn a 5-Star Overall Score.

GM research found that safety ranks in the top 10 reasons for purchasing a certain vehicle, so they make sure to put an emphasis on it.

“We design safety and crashworthiness into our vehicles very early in development,” said Gay Kent, GM’s general director of Vehicle Safety and Crashworthiness. “We are committed to offering advanced safety technologies on a broad range of models, not just on the most expensive vehicles. All of our vehicles are designed to provide continuous protection for customers before, during and after a crash.”

Advanced-Safety Features Help 2014 Chevrolet Sonic Earn 5-Star Safety Rating

If you are like most people, knowing that a vehicle has earned a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score for safety brings a sense of relief. As a buyer it makes you feel comfortable knowing that you are getting a vehicle that has proved to be safe throughout many rigorous tests. The 2014 Chevrolet Sonic is one such vehicle that adds that sense of relief as it has recently earned a 5-star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

“Customer safety is our top priority,” said Dongseok Kim, General Motors Korea managing director of safety, regulations and product investigations. “Advanced safety technologies enable customers to feel confident when buying a small car like the Chevy Sonic.”

Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Alert, and a rear-vision camera are just some of the advanced-safety features included on the 2014 Chevrolet Sonic.

When it is active, Forward Collision Alert will warn a driver if they are approaching another vehicle too quickly. The rear-vision camera gives a clear view of objects behind the vehicle. Lastly, Lane Departure Warning lets the driver know when the vehicle has veered from the lane they are in.

The 5-star safety rating that the 2014 Sonic has earned is quite the accomplishment, especially since it is the only car in its class to receive such a rating.
