Overall, the 2016 Chevy Trax received a top five-star rating overall in government crash tests — which puts it at the head of the segment for safety. But it shouldn’t be a surprise at this point, with Chevy’s three-point approach to safety, most of their 2016 models are doing exceptionally well in safety crash tests. Prevent, protect, and respond. By taking this approach, Chevy vehicles are able to combat a collision before, during, and after it happens.
In order to do this, the Trax needs to have some pretty advanced safety systems on board. In order to prevent a collision, StabiliTrak Electronic Stability Control, available Rear Park Assist, and a standard rear vision camera are only a few of the features that are perfect for preventing an accident in crowded city traffic. If a collision does occur, then 10 standard air bags with a high-strength steel safety cage will help absorb the impact. After, OnStar Automatic Crash Response will make sure to contact you immediately with an emergency dispatcher after sensing a collision. If you are unable to respond and say you need help, then the OnStar Advisor will automatically send help to your location via pinpoint GPS tracking.
That way, you have peace of mind that even if you can’t contact emergency services during a collision, OnStar has your back.
