The all-new Chevy Trax was recently presented with a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). This is the highest rating given out by the government organization.
The 2015 Chevy Trax’s safety rating continues Chevy’s winning streak in terms of safety; Chevrolet has more 5-Star-rated vehicles for 2015 than any other automaker in the country. It is also reassuring to see another small SUV earn a top safety rating, as the market is expanding at an incredible rate. In fact, Chevrolet reports that the market for small SUVs like the Trax is expected to grow a whopping 80 percent over the course of the next few years.
Earning the top safety rating is no easy task. The Trax had to undergo front, side, and rollover testing in NHTSA’s New Car Assessment Program. The SUV was also subjected to a side pole impact test, in which the Trax earned another 5 stars.
“The Trax is the perfect example of Chevrolet’s commitment to putting state-of-the-art technology and class-leading safety features where it matters most for the customer,” said Brian Sweeney, the U.S. vice president of Chevrolet.
Among those features and technologies are 10 standard airbags, a standard rearview camera, and available rear park assist. In addition, the Trax is composed of 66 percent high-strength and ultra-high strength steels.
