2017 Chevrolet Volt safety

If you’re looking for a 5-passenger gas/electric hybrid that offers all of the latest safety features to keep you and your passengers secure, the 2017 Chevrolet Volt is what you need. To demonstrate the value of this innovative compact to Tampa and Sarasota drivers, the experts at Cox Chevy have created a catalog of the Volt’s standard and available safety features, as well as the most recent crash safety information. We think the results speak for themselves.

Passenger Protection

  • Advanced Airbags The dual-stage frontal driver and right front passenger airbags are equipped with passenger sensors to prevent smaller passengers from being harmed by forcefully deploying airbags.

  • Lockout Child safety locks with manual lockout switch ensure that small passengers can’t accidentally open the rear doors while the vehicle is in motion.

  • Teen Driver Mode A built-in electronic system can keep new drivers safe by muting the audio if the seatbelts aren’t used, giving audible and visual warnings if the vehicle exceeds preset speed limits, limit music volume and alert the vehicle owner if certain safety measures are activated.

  • Automatic Crash Response In the event that an accident occurs, the OnStar system, when properly equipped, can notify emergency services of the vehicle’s exact location. Allowing the Volt to summon help even if you cannot.

Accident Prevention

As reassuring as the Volt’s protective measures are, we think it’s even better to drive a car that can prevent the need for those features in the first place. The Volt is designed to do just that with innovative options like:

  • Rearview Camera The standard rear vision camera system displays the area behind the vehicle, making it easy to avoid obstacles and pedestrians. When combined with options like Automatic Parking Assist, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, and Side Blind Zone Alert, parking is nearly effortless.

  • Automatic Braking Forward Automatic Braking with low-speed feature can help the Volt avoid certain collisions by applying the brakes if the driver fails to react to obstacles in the car’s path.

  • Driver Assist Options like Forward Collision Alert and Lane Keep Assist help drivers stay alert to other vehicles sharing the roadway and help to maintain proper lane position, reducing the likelihood of a crash by distracted drivers.

Safety Ratings

The Chevrolet Volt hasn’t been tested by either the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) since 2015. When it was, however, it was given high marks from both organizations, earning a 5-star overall rating from the NHTSA and being named a Top Safety Pick by the IIHS. With new materials, improved design, and better overall safety options included on the 2017 model, we foresee even better results for when the 2017 model is tested.
