Chevy Rings in the New Year with 4 IIHS Top Safety Picks!
If your New Year’s resolution is to buy a new car, why not go for one of the safest models on the road? Four of our best-selling Chevy models have been named to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s (IIHS) list of Top Safety Picks for 2015, and we couldn’t be more proud! Now the Chevrolet Spark, Volt, Malibu and Equinox will be known for even more than their unique styling, eco-friendly performances and spirited dynamics — they’ll also make waves as some of the safest cars available today.
To be recognized as one of the IIHS’s Top Safety Picks, a vehicle must achieve a “good” rating in the moderate overlap front, side, roof-strength and head-restraint tests, as well as a good or “acceptable” rating in the small-overlap front test. The Chevy Volt and Spark each received an “acceptable” rating on their small-overlap front tests, while the Chevrolet Malibu and Equinox achieved the higher “good” rating.
“Consumer metric programs such as IIHS Top Safety Pick and NHTSA NCAP provide our customers with information to make comparisons across vehicle manufacturers for a given market segment. Having these four vehicles named 2015 IIHS Top Safety Picks is a great achievement,” said Jeff Boyer, GM vice president of Global Vehicle Safety.
Chevrolet’s outstanding host of standard safety features helped each of these vehicles to achieve this coveted designation. Equipped with a winning combination of rollover sensors, electronic stability control, antilock brakes and daytime running lights, as well as plenty of airbags, the Volt, Spark, Malibu and Chevy Equinox can all offer you plenty of protection as you take on the Garden State’s busy roads.
