The award further cements Chevrolet’s lead in 5-Star rated 2015 vehicles, having more models in its lineup than any brand sold in the U.S. It also puts the Trax among the safest in the quickly expanding small SUV segment, which is expected to grow more than 80 percent in the next few years.

The Trax’s body structure forms a protective cage around the passenger compartment, with 66 percent of it composed of high-strength steels – including ultra-high-strength steel in strategic areas. The Trax features 10 air bags standard and a standard rearview camera. Rear park assist is available.

The NCAP evaluations include front, side and rollover testing. Trax also received a 5-star score on a side pole impact test, which simulates hitting a tree just behind the driver’s side A-pillar at 20 mph.
