Chevrolet Trax rated tops by Euro consumer programGM Korea said yesterday its Chevrolet Trax, a small SUV, has been awarded the top five-star rating by the independent consumer organization European New Car Assessment Program (Euro NCAP). The Trax is the seventh Chevrolet model to receive Euro NCAP’s top rating, joining the Aveo, Volt, Cruze, Orlando, Malibu and Captiva.
“The bold and rugged Trax exterior design suggests a high level of safety at a first glance. Safety is, among others, one of the purchase reasons for SUVs. We are really proud of the five-star NCAP test result, confirming what Trax customers expect from our new small SUV,” Sergio Rocha, GM Korea president and CEO, said in a release.
The Euro NCAP results showed that in the Adult Occupant category, the Trax scored a 94 out of 100 for safety. It achieved maximum points in the side barrier test, providing occupants with good protection for all parts of the body.
