The new generation of the Chevrolet Sonic has recently received the five-star safety rating at the NHTSA crash tests.
Good news for future owners of the Chevrolet Sonic, or Aveo as it is known in Europe, and for the company, after the model has just received a five-star rating after being tested by the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) in the United States, at the most recent crash tests. What is mostly interesting about these latest tests is that both the Chevrolet Sonic sedan and the Chevrolet Sonic hatchback have received the same five-star rating, because they are both carrying the same safety features.
“We developed Sonic to exceed customer expectations of subcompacts in terms of segment-leading safety features. From the largest vehicles in our lineup to the smallest, we are putting overall crashworthiness and state-of-the-art safety technologies at the top of the list of must-haves”, said the General Motors director of vehicle safety, Gay Kent.
Besides wondering what parents would name their son “Gay”, I’m pretty sure you’re asking yourselves what kind of safety features does the new generation of the Chevrolet Sonic have. Well, the answer to that last question is pretty simple, ten airbags, federally required stability control and rollover sensors, these should be enough to get you out of almost any unpleasant situation.
