Great! But as good as this is, i can't say I didn't see it coming, it's expected.
The award is part of the NHTSA’s New Car Assessment Program, and further cements Chevrolet’s lead as having more five-star rated vehicles in its lineup than any other auto brand in the United States. This also means the Trax is among one of the safest vehicles in the ever-expanding small crossover segment, which by the way is expected to expand by eighty percent in the next few years.
The 2015 Chevrolet Trax uses high-strength steel wherever it can be utilized, especially in critical A-pillar areas of the vehicle. In all, sixty-six percent of the car is composed of high-strength steel. The Trax also makes use of ten standard air bags and a rear-view camera. Rear park assist is also an option.
“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, U.S. vice president, Chevrolet.
Overall just about any vehicle is safe, safe within their own class.But I don't think that any automaker wants their products to seem like if you are poor, you can't afford to be safe. I don't think it looks good for the whole brand.
thats where it gets interesting right. whats a 5 star worth if everyone has a 5 star?I don't know. 5 stars seems to be the industry standard, which is both good and bad. Most people wouldn't want to buy a vehicle thats less than 4 stars unless they have to from janky used car lots, but I've actually driven 3 star cars before that I've actually liked a lot, even if they might have been less than ideal. Safety is a definite concern of mine, but I also like to have a vehicle that feels powerful, even if a bit more dangerous in the event of a crash.
