Safety Features of the 2012 Chevy Cruze

The 2012 Chevy Cruze has an all-new stance on what it means to be a safe yet spacious compact car. With its innovative design and plush interior, it’s hard not to want it. Stop in to view the new Chevy Cruze at Chevrolet of Homewood, and check out the award-winning safety features that make it a huge favorite this year.

Avoid Accidents With Chevy

The Cruze was both an IIHS Top Safety Pick in 2011 and awarded a 5-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA with their New Car Assessment Program. These awards were given largely in part to the fantastic safety features and security systems on the Cruze, like the Stabilitrak Electronic Stability Control System. This system helps you in those unexpected maneuvers or emergency weather conditions to maintain control of your vehicle at all times. It does this by measuring how the driver turns and the rate the vehicle is turning with its digital steering angle sensor and a solid-state yaw rate sensor. It knows which way the driver wants to steer versus the present movement of the vehicle. If it’s not matching, it will automatically apply the correct amount of pressure for the brakes and will lower engine power.

Another fantastic feature is the traction control system, which lessens wheelspin if you’re losing traction in one or both wheels while on wet or snowy roads. It gives extreme grip from the wheel to the road, so when you speed up, you maintain control.

And with 10 air bags, it’s hard not to feel safe at any time in the Cruze. That, and the exterior is made of a steel safety cage and has roof crush resistance.

To top it off, you get access to OnStar to get help when you need it. Part of our standard six month agreement with OnStar Directions and Connections, you’ll find the OnStar Automatic Crash and Response System. If necessary, your location is isolated and help can be sent right away. It’s good to be connected.
