The Chevy Cruise is known for its elegant style, its advanced technology, and its exceptional fuel efficiency. Most important to Chevrolet, however, is safety, and the Chevy Cruze delivers. It was named a 2012 Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and received a Five-Star Overall Vehicle Score in safety from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
But what makes the Cruze so safe? Well, for starters, it features an outstanding ten airbags. No other car in the Cruze’s class comes with more. You may be scratching your head, wondering how a car could even fit ten airbags, but rest assured, it is the intelligent design and placement of these airbags that will seriously decrease accident fatalities. The Cruze features frontal and knee airbags for both front seats, as well as side-impact seat-mounted airbags for the driver, front passengers, and outbound rear passenger seats. Also in the Cruze are roof rail head-curtain airbags, deploying inside the vehicle on the side of the collision.
In addition to the airbags, the Cruze also features roof crush resistance that goes above and beyond federal requirements, as well as a high-strength steel safety cage. Equipped with StabiliTrak, the Cruze offers traction control in the event that the driver has difficulty maneuvering the vehicle in emergency situations and in slippery road conditions. Finally, the Cruze comes with OnStar, which features an automatic crash response, getting emergency vehicles to you even faster.
