Chevy Safe Vehicles

When it comes to buying a new car, safety is always important. According to Chevy research, safety ranks in the top 10 reasons for purchasing a certain vehicle, so they make sure to put an emphasis on it. Their goal is to design safety and crashworthiness into their vehicles very early in development on a broad range of models, not just on the most expensive vehicles. All Chevrolet vehicles are designed to provide continuous protection for customers before, during and after a crash.

If you are in the market for a new Chevy in Phoenix, you will find seven 2014 model year vehicles that have earned a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score for safety from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) offered by Chevrolet. That’s more than any other automotive brand can claim.

NHTSA is responsible for reducing deaths, injuries and economic losses resulting from motor vehicle crashes. This is accomplished by setting and enforcing safety performance standards for motor vehicles and motor vehicle equipment, and through grants to state and local governments to enable them to conduct effective local highway safety programs.

NHTSA also investigates safety defects in motor vehicles, sets and enforces fuel economy standards. NHTSA takes pride in helping states and local communities reduce the threat of drunk drivers, promoting the use of safety belts and providing consumer information on motor vehicle safety topics.

The seven vehicles to earn a 5-Star Overall Score in the NHTSA’s New Car Assessment Program were the Chevrolet Sonic, Cruze, Volt, Impala, Traverse, Camaro Coupe, and the Silverado 1500 Crew Cab, all available at a Chandler Chevy dealer. Even more impressive is the fact that the Sonic is the first and only car in the subcompact class to earn a 5-Star Overall Score.
