The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is one of the two most prestigious auto safety testing agencies in the country. For the 2022 model year, the NHTSA has given its top 5-star safety rating to five vehicles in the Chevrolet lineup.
The classic muscle car, the Camaro, was one of the five, while the other four were SUVs. Two subcompact crossovers, the Trax and Trailblazer, the compact Equinox, and the midsize Blazer performed exceptionally well in three crash tests including Frontal Crash, Side Crash, and Rollover.
The NHTSA also notes whether vehicles have recommended crash prevention technologies. Active safety tech is standard on the Trailblazer, Equinox, and Blazer, and Chevy will add standard Chevy Safety Assist to the Trax and Camaro in future refreshes.
Chevy’s 5-star-rated vehicles have an option for every kind of driver. The Trax, for instance, is small and easy to maneuver, boasting excellent fuel economy, but it doesn’t sacrifice peppy performance and interior space. The other subcompact SUV, the Trailblazer, is much more geared toward off-road adventures, transitioning easily from daily driving to weekend trips to the lake.
The Equinox is a super versatile family hauler thanks to its increased cargo space, while still being small enough to maneuver around the city. The midsize Blazer, with its 4,500-pound towing capacity when properly equipped and sporty performance and styling, blends form and function seamlessly.
And, of course, the Camaro is perfect for drivers who want a thrilling sports car without sacrificing their safety, especially when you add available safety tech like Forward Collision Alert and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
