The professionals at Chevrolet of Naperville, the premier Chevy dealership in Naperville, IL, care about the safety of their customers. That’s why they are proud to offer the 5-star safety rated 2012 Chevy Sonic in Naperville, IL.

The 2012 Chevy Sonic received a 5-star overall score after its excellent performance in crash safety tests performed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). That feat is even more impressive since the NHTSA began using a more rigorous process for the test beginning in 2010. The 5-star rating was achieved after the vehicle underwent front and side crash tests in addition to rollover resistance testing.

Such a high score could be expected from the 2012 Chevy Sonic since it offers a plethora of safety features, including a high-strength steel safety cage. The Sonic also has a complex airbag system that provides driver and occupant protection throughout the vehicle. In addition, the car has features such as rollover sensors, StabiliTrack electronic stability control, power-assisted front disc and rear drum brakes, full-function traction control, and much more.

“We developed the Sonic to exceed customer expectations of subcompacts in terms of segment-leading safety features,” said Gay Kent, General Motors executive director of vehicle safety.

The safety success doesn’t only include the Sonic, as General Motors now has 10 vehicles that have obtained the perfect 5-star rating for vehicle safety on the NHTSA testing thus far. Chevrolet of Naperville has a full lineup of Chevy cars in Naperville, IL. They can be reached by calling 877-450-1080.
