2011 Chevrolet Cruze 5 Star Crash Rating!

General Motors is rocking the boat!  They are getting themselves all kinds of recognition and awards to finish out this year!

The new Chevrolet Cruze has recently been awarded a five-star overall safety score by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), which is the first vehicle in its class to be tested under their new conditions.  These new conditions are called the New Car Assessment Program (NCAP).  The Cruze scored five stars in each of the new tests which brings its overall score to a five!

“Cruze has achieved five-star crash safety scores everywhere it is rated in the world. This is the direct result of our global engineering team’s focused effort,” said Jeff Boyer, General Motors’ executive director of vehicle safety. “These safety ratings reflect the confidence we have in Cruze’s state-of-the-art safety technologies and overall crashworthiness.”
The Cruze is offered with multiple safety features as standard, including the following:

  • 10 air bags including front knee air bags – a first for the segment
  • Front passenger seat occupant sensing system
  • Panic Brake Assist and Enhanced Smart Pedal
  • StabiliTrak electronic stability control
  • Rollover sensing technology that enables timely head curtain side air bag deployment
  • Three-point safety belts in all five seating positions
  • Safety belt retractor pretensioners and lap pretensioners in the driver and front-passenger positions
  • Safety belt load limiters (with pretensioners) in the front safety belt retractors
  • Child seat latching system in the rear seat
  • Tire pressure monitoring system
  • Daytime running lamps and automatic headlamps
The Chevrolet Cruze also received the IHS Top Safety Picks after scoring “Good” in front, side, rear and rollover crash protection tests conducted by the insurance institute for Highway Safety (IHS).
