Safety Features of the 2016 Chevrolet Trax LS
The 2016 Chevrolet Trax LS earned an overall five-star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for its excellent frontal and side crash test results. The Chevy Trax is a critic and driver favorite for its many advanced safety features. Wondering which ones are especially beloved? Here are six safety features of the Trax LS.
Standard Air Bags
Each 2016 Chevrolet Trax LS comes standard with ten air bags. These air bags are optimally located at the frontal and knee area for driver and front seat passengers, and they are seat-mounted along the side for front and rear passengers, as well as roof rail mounted at the top. The air bags include a Passenger Sensing System that adjusts air bag inflation as needed during a crash for the passenger in the front seat.
Stabili Trak Electronic Stability Control
Stabili Trak helps control vehicle stability, especially during emergency maneuvers. It operates using a control module that compares your steering with the vehicle’s response, and it makes any necessary braking or engine torque changes. Whether your car fishtails on a slippery road, or you’re forced to swerve to avoid an object, Stabili Trak automatically kicks in and applies braking power and engine adjustment where you need it most so you can regain control.
Rear Park Assist and Rear Vision Camera
Rear Park Assist delivers audible warning sounds when it senses that you’re close to objects around you. For convenience, it automatically activates when you drive in reverse at low speeds. For more safety and security, the rear-vision camera provides a visual of what’s behind you, so you can avoid hitting any objects and successfully reverse park every time.
High Strength Steel Safety Cage
The Chevrolet Trax LS features a protective safety cage made of ultra-high-strength steel that protects you and your passengers while inside. In an accident, the cage acts as a barrier between you and the colliding object to reduce the risk of injury.
OnStar with Automatic Crash Response
Few safety features offer as much peace of mind as the Chevrolet Trax’s OnStar with Automatic Crash Response does. It operates using built-in sensors that can predict the severity of an accident, and it automatically alerts an OnStar Advisor who can connect to your vehicle and decide if you need help. Regardless of whether you’re able to answer or not, the OnStar Advisor will take action to make sure that you and your passengers get help as quickly as possible.
Tire Pressure Monitoring System
To avoid increased tire wear, tire blowout, and accidents, the Trax LS comes standard with an electronic tire pressure monitoring system. It works by monitoring the air pressure in each of your tires and notifies you if any of them are too low. This way, you can fill up your tires and resume driving safely.
From electronic stability control to automatic crash response communication, the 2016 Chevrolet Trax LS has a range of features that will keep you safe and secure on the road.
