Total Articles: 3
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has a new car assessment program for testing all makes and models of cars on the market in the United States. They have recently awarded the Chevy Trax Sport Utility Vehicle their highest 5-star safety rating. The Trax is a compact SUV of the type that are increasing in popularity due to their combination of roominess and fuel economy.
The NHTSA's new car assessment testing includes subjecting vehicles to both frontal and side crashes to see how they hold up and how any passengers in them would fare. They also subject vehicles to tests that determine how readily they roll over and what damage and injury would be sustained in the event that they do. The Trax was also subjected to a side impact test that simulates hitting a tree in which it also received the highest score possible. It is one of numerous Chevrolet vehicles that have received this coveted 5-star rating from the NHTSA.
It is easy to see how the Chevy Trax won this high position in an evaluation of its safety performance. A large portion of the body of the Trax forms a protective cage around the passenger cabin. This protective structure in the body is composed of high strength materials. The Trax has lighter materials where indicated to save on weight and increase fuel efficiency, but when it comes to core parts of the structure that affect safety, the designers at Chevy pulled out all the stops with this vehicle.
In addition to structural elements to keep the passengers safe, the Chevy Trax has other safety technologies and conveniences. It comes standard with a whopping ten airbags. These include the usual frontal air bags complemented with side and rear ones, as well as driver and front seat passenger knee air bags.
Ideally, none of us want to have the personal experience of finding out how well our car, truck or SUV will protect us in an accident. With this in mind, The Chevy Trax includes features to help the driver avoid getting in an accident in the first place. A rearview camera is standard on all trim levels. StabiliTrak electronic stability control with traction control comes standard as well. ABS brakes with electronic brake force distribution round out this list of the most important accident-avoidance technologies.
With the Trax, Chevrolet has come out with a winner in the compact sport utility vehicle category. It cements Chevy as a safety leader in this increasingly popular small SUV segment. The Trax has crossover appeal to a wide consumer audience. It affords families with the styling they desire, while preserving the safety they demand. It offers exceptional looks and safety without compromising on either.
