Whether it’s your first new car or a vehicle for your budding family, the 2017 Chevrolet Sonic safety features should be on your mind.

Now you can learn the ways the latest Sonic protects you before getting behind the wheel; see its standard and available accident prevention and passenger protection features below.

Accident Prevention

Some say that the best accident is one you can walk away from, but we would rather you avoid it entirely. These 2017 Chevrolet Sonic safety features are designed to help you avoid an accident or at least mitigate the damage.

  • 2017 Chevrolet Sonic trimsRear Vision Camera: Standard on the Sonic, the rear vision camera lets you back up from a parking spot or driveway with confidence that your path is clear – clear of pedestrians, the kids’ bikes, other vehicles, you name it.

  • Lane Departure Warning: Chevrolet’s available Lane Departure Warning senses if the vehicle starts to drift from its lane by tracking the pavement markings with a front-mounted camera, issuing a warning to alert the driver and re-center the car.

  • Forward Collision Alert: Radar sensors on this available safety feature are able to track how quickly you approach another vehicle in the Sonic. If it senses you’re on a collision course, it issues warnings to slow down or brake to avoid the accident.

  • Rear Park Assist: Radar on the rear of the Sonic enables this optional safety feature to make backing up and parking even more convenient, alerting you to when an object or another car might be in your way when backing up.

Passenger Protection

When an accident can’t be avoided, these 2017 Chevrolet Sonic safety features work to protect you and your passengers.

  • 3-Point Seat Belts: Each seating position on the Sonic is equipped with a 3-point seat belt to anchor you and your passengers in place during a collision.

  • 10 Standard Airbags: A pair of dual-stage frontal airbags, a pair of front knee airbags, and a set of side impact airbags protect front passengers while roof-rail head curtain airbags offer rollover protection for Sonic passengers.

  • High-Strength Safety Cage: By reinforcing common collision locations and building crumple zones into the frame, the Sonic’s high-strength safety cage has been engineered to protect passengers.

  • OnStar: The available OnStar Automatic Crash Response System can notify the authorities when it detects that the Sonic has been in an accident, sending assistance to your vehicle as soon as possible.
