2016 Chevrolet Trax Earns Five-Star Safety Rating From Federal Government


WASHINGTON — The 2016 Chevrolet Trax subcompact SUV earned the top five-star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The 2016 Trax, which is expected to arrive at Chevrolet dealerships this summer, received five stars in the front and side crash tests and four stars in the rollover crash test.

The rating applies to front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive versions of the Trax.

Standard safety equipment includes 10 airbags, including rear-seat-mounted thorax airbags. Other standard safety features include a rearview camera, electronic stability control, traction control and antilock brakes.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has not rated the 2016 Trax, which is a carryover vehicle. The 2015 Trax is an IIHS 2015 Top Safety Pick, earning "good" scores in all crash tests.

Key competitors to the Trax include the Kia Soul, Nissan Juke and Mitsubishi Outlander Sport.

Edmunds says: Car shoppers should note that the 2016 Kia Soul also received the top five-star safety rating from NHTSA. The 2016 Nissan Juke has not been rated. The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport received a four-star overall safety rating from NHTSA.
