Chevrolet’s Newest Small Car Earns the Top Safety Rating From EuroNCAP

September 1, 2011

Brand new from the Chevrolet automotive company is the Aveo hatchback, currently in progress to be sold in dealer lots this fall as the Chevy Sonic.  And just recently, the new Sonic received a top 5-star rating from the well known European New Car Assessment Program, or EuroNCAP.  According to the details released from the EuroNCAP, the new Aveo hatchback or Sonic scored a high ranking with 85/100 points, making it an eligible vehicle for their 5-star official rating.  So far, the new rating places the hatchback among the very best in its entire segment.  At Jessup Auto Plaza, we’re pleased to offer the consumer local Palm Desert Chevrolet deals.

The key areas of adult and child occupant protection saw the highest ratings for the new Chevrolet Sonic.  Respectively, it scored 95 and 87 percent of the maximum possible points.  Ready to be sold in North America this fall as the Chevrolet Sonic, the hatchback comes equipped with no less than ten airbags on the standard model.  These are connected directly to the diagnostic and sensing modules that are mounted directly in the centerline of the car.  The child-seat latching system is brand new for the Chevrolet model as well.  Plus, the active safety systems of the Sonic are many: an electronic stability control system, traction control, electronic brake force distribution, and a 4-channel, antilock braking system complete with brake assist.  It’s a car designed to keep the driver and passengers safe.

2011 is the centennial year for Chevrolet, and the Chevy Sonic is part of a wave of new car launches across Europe and North America from the well known car name brand.  The Corvette Grand Sport, Captiva, Cruze hatchback, and Camaro coupe are other new models created to celebrate the centennial year of Chevrolet.
