The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact. Dummy readings indicated good protection for the knees and femurs of both the driver and front passenger dummies and Chevrolet showed that a similar level of protection would be offered to occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different seating positions. The Aveo scored maximum points in the side barrier test, all body regions being well protected. Even in the more severe pole test, the chest was adequately protected. The seat and head restraint provided good protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision.
Maximum points were scored in the dynamic tests for the protection of the 3 year infant. The passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. Clear information is provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag and the system was rewarded by Euro NCAP. Permanently attached labels also provide clear warnings that the passenger airbag should be disabled before a rearward facing child seat can be used in that position.
► 2012 Chevy Sonic makes a bungee jump!
When Chevrolet decided to launch the all-new Sonic in the States, it seems
they took the word 'launch' a little too seriously.
On the back of research that showed extreme sports to be highly popular
within the car's 18-30 target customer range, the company decided to make
quite an impact by throwing a car from the top of a ten storey tower in
Long Beach, California.
Well, we say impact. But just before it plummeted to the ground, the
all-new Aveo dipped its nose in a paddling pool and bounced back up in an
incredible display of non-contact automotive bungee-jumping.
The stunt was performed as part of Chevrolet's 'Let's do this' marketing
campaign in the USA.
The Bungee Jump is the second extreme sport in which the Aveo has
participated. Last month, the car was launched more quickly than any car in
history -- accelerating from 0-60mph in just 0.4 seconds as it was pushed
out of an aeroplane, to perform its first freefall skydive.
2012 Chevrolet Aveo - ESC TEST
Electronic stability control is standard equipment across the Aveo range,
and met Euro NCAP's test requirements. The driver, front passenger and rear
seats are all covered by a standard-fit seatelt reminder. A warning is
given if the vehicle speed exceeds a limit se by the driver, a system that
was also rewarded by Euro NCAP.

Electronic stability control is standard on the X3 and met Euro NCAP's
requirements. There is a seatbelt reminder system for the driver and
passenger, but not for the rear seats. The X3 is not available with a speed
2012 Chevrolet Captiva CRASH TEST
The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact. Dummy
readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs. Chevrolet
showed that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of
different sizes and those sat in different positions. All body areas were
well protected in the side barrier test and the car scored maximum points
in this test. In the more severe side pole impact, dummy readings of rib
compression indiciated marginal protection of the chest area. The front
seats and head restraints provided marginal protection against whiplash
injuries in the event of a rear end collision.
Forward movement of the 3 year dummy, sat in a forward facing restraint,
was not excessive. In the side barrier test, both child dummies were
properly contained by the protective shells of their restraints, minimising
the likelihood of dangerous head contacts. The passenger airbag can be
disabled by means of a switch, allowing a rearward facing child restraint
to be used in that seating position. However, information provided to the
driver regarding the status of the airbag is not clear and the system was
not rewarded. Clear warnings are given of the dangers of using a rearward
facing restraint in that seat without first disabling the airbag.
The front edge of the bonnet provided uniformly poor protection to
pedestrians. In most areas likely to be struck by a child's head, the
bonnet provided good protection. However, predominantly poor protection was
provided in those areas likely to be struck by and adult's head.
Electronic stability control is standard equipment, as is a seatbelt
reminder for the driver and front passenger seats. A speed limitiation
device is not available.

A small-sized adult female crash test dummy is placed in the
driver's seat and is secured with a seat belt. The test vehicle,
angled at 75 degrees, is then pulled sideways at 20 mph into
a 25-cm diameter pole at the driver's seating location. This
test mimics a side impact crash involving a narrow, fixed
object like a utility pole or tree.

What Camerons Car Reviews has to say about the 2013 Sonic: Chevrolet is
starting to prove to other Japanese automakers that they are not messing
around anymore. This can be applied to the Sonic a car that was once a
cheap Aveo has now gone upmarket with much technology and a sporty
character that couldn't be said with the Aveo. Inside you will find it to
be very unique with a fun character on the interior and comfortable seats
as well as a futuristic touchscreen. The Aveo comes in a hatchback or a
sedan. All in all great car from Chevy, but can it handle the competition
from the hot selling Honda Fit and Ford Fiesta. We think so.

2011 Chevrolet Aveo roadtest (english subtitled)
Groot zijn de aantallen niet voor Chevrolet in Nederland. Met de Cruze
hoopte het Koreaanse merk potten te kunnen breken in het C-segment, maar
daar is vooralsnog weinig van terecht gekomen. Het is nu de beurt aan de
Aveo om types als de Fiesta, Punto en Fabia te beconcurreren. Is hij tegen
de concurrentie opgewassen? We gaan rijden.
