Euro NCAP names supermini Chevrolet Aveo as “Best in Class” tested in 2011

Article by Anita Panait, on February 10, 2012

Euro NCAP has named the Chevrolet Aveo as the “best in class” in 2011 for the supermini segment, after the car earned high safety scores from judges.  The Aveo gained 85 out of a possible 100 Euro NCAP points, topping its segment. The car particularly impressed Euro NCAP judges with its key safety features, bagging 95 points in the adult occupant protection criterion, and 87 points in the child occupant protection gauge. The Aveo is fitted with six standard airbags that are linked to the sensors installed at the center of the vehicle. The car also features a child-seat latching system.

The Aveo’s active safety features include electronic stability control, traction control, a four-channel anti-lock braking system with brake assist, and electronic brake force distribution. The supermini is also installed with a hill-start assist and cruise control and speed limiter function "We take safety very seriously at Chevrolet and this class-leading result for the New Chevrolet Aveo proves this entirely," said Mark Terry, Managing Director of Chevrolet UK. 

Terry added that company’s whole model line-up provides faultless safety credentials, the majority of which has achieved a five star rating. Terry remarked that these safety features bring “great peace of mind” to its customers. 

Chevrolet's current model line-up all carries Euro NCAP five-star ratings – the Aveo, the Cruze, Captiva, Orlando and Volt. The Volt made it to the line after it was recently cleared by U.S. regulators over a possible fire risk on its battery pack. With five Chevrolet cars carrying five-star safety badges, the company has proven that its cars score high in cost safety and road safety.
