Chevrolet is offering seven 2014 model year vehicles that gained 5-Star Overall Vehicle Scores for safety from the United States National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Chevrolet's 5-Star lineup is even larger than any other brand and Ford and Toyota combined. Using its New Car Assessment Program testing, NHTSA awarded the 5-star Overall Score to the Chevrolet Sonic, Cruze, Volt, Impala, Traverse, Camaro Coupe and Silverado 1500 Crew Cab.

Sonic is the first and subcompact car to gain a 5-Star Overall Score from NHTSA.  When designing and engineering new vehicles, Chevrolet carefully considers federal motor vehicle safety standards and safety regulations. Around 40 percent of the crash load cases are based on regulatory requirements while 60 percent are based on General Motors’ internal requirements for vehicle safety and crashworthiness. According to GM research, safety is among the top 10 reasons for purchase.

According to 2012 calendar year sales data, around 54 percent of Chevrolet, Cadillac, GMC and Buick buyers surveyed said that safety features are “extremely important” in making a purchase. The same percentage of buyers industry-wide likewise listed safety features as “extremely important.”  Gay Kent, GM’s general director of Vehicle Safety and Crashworthiness, remarked that they design safety and crashworthiness into their vehicles "very early in development,” adding that they are committed to offering advanced safety technologies on a broad range of models.

He noted that all of their vehicles are designed to "provide continuous protection for customers before, during and after a crash."GM has installed several active safety technologies -- including forward collision alert and lane departure warning -- on many new Chevrolet vehicles, from small cars to big trucks.
