Chevy’s has a Reputation for Safety

Five stars is the highest rating a vehicle can receive from the NHTSA. The evaluations include front and side collision testing, as well as rollover testing. In addition, Trax scored a five-star rating on a side pole impact test. Chevrolet is proud to have more five-star rated vehicles in its current lineup than any other brand sold in the United States. This is also means the Trax is among the very safest vehicle among the small SUVs sold in that rapidly-growing market segment.

Designed for Maximum Protection

Chevrolet Vice President Brian Sweeney said that the Trax is a perfect example of Chevrolet’s mission of using technology to create safety features the consumer needs, and they’ve carried out their mission. The true strength of the Trax lies in the structure of its body, both in the technology used to create it and the quality of the materials used to build it. The body of the Trax forms a cage around the passenger compartment which deflects and absorbs energy from any collision. This cage is made out of 66% high-strength steel, and is reinforced by ultra-high-strength steel in strategic areas.

The Trax also includes 10 standard airbags, knee protectors and bolsters, as well as standard seatbelts with pre-tensioning to avoid unwanted looseness during a collision.
