The vast inventory of Chevy vehicles available at Don Wheaton represents some of the most capable vehicles that are available to our customers. Now, with the release of some new information from General Motors Canada, we can not tell you that four Chevy models have been picked as among the safest in the industry by the American non-profit organization, Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). This group is fully funded by insurance companies in The States and provides excellent information about crash-worthiness of each vehicle produced by almost every automaker on the planet.
For the 2015 model-year, the Chevy Spark, Volt, Malibu and Equinox have all been by the IIHS as some of the newest additions to the list of Top Safety Picks. To obtain this designation, each vehicle must pass a rigorous set of crash tests that evaluate several different metrics. The crashes are tested from several different angles to allow for enough data to be collected to be able to make accurate pronouncements. The IIHS evaluations include, moderate overlap, side impacts, roof strength and head restraint tests.
“Consumer metric programs such as IIHS Top Safety Pick and NHTSA NCAP provide our customers with information to make comparisons across vehicle manufacturers for a given market segment. Having these four vehicles named 2015 IIHS Top Safety Picks is a great achievement,” Jeff Boyer, GM vice president, Global Vehicle Safety said in a General Motors press release.
What is really fantastic about these four vehicles being named to the Top Safety Picks list, is that they are some of the most popular vehicles that we sell or lease at Don Wheaton. The subcompact Chevy Spark is an outstanding little vehicle that is perfect for providing affordable transportation with more than a little style added in. Of course the Chevy Volt has some of the best fuel-economy ever seen in a vehicle that can go more than 1,400 kilometers between stops for gas. The Chevy Malibu is one of the most popular midsize sedans on the planet with sharp aesthetics and performance to spare. And the Chevy Equinox remains as one of the most desirable choices in the crossover SUV inventory at Don Wheaton.
