There you go, safety first
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.
