IIHS - 2015 Chevrolet Sonic - small overlap crash test / GOOD EVALUATION
2015 Chevrolet Sonic Small car 2015 TOP SAFETY PICK Crashworthiness Small overlap front G Moderate overlap front G Side G Roof strength G Head restraints & seats G Rating scale: G = Good A = Acceptable M = Marginal P = Poor Small overlap crash test details: Applies to 2015 models built after February 2015 Overall evaluation G Structure and safety cage A Injury measures: Head/neck G Chest G Hip/thigh G Lower leg/foot G Restraints and dummy kinematics G Important: Frontal crash test ratings should be compared only among vehicles of similar weight. The Chevrolet Sonic was introduced in the 2012 model year. Beginning with 2015 models built after February 2015, the front-end structure, door sill, and hinge pillar were modified to improve occupant protection in small overlap frontal crashes. Also, the side curtain airbags were lengthened and reprogrammed to deploy earlier in small overlap crashes. The small overlap frontal ratings apply to both the 4-door sedan and hatchback (5-door) versions of the Sonic. Structure The driver space was maintained reasonably well, with maximum intrusion of the lower interior of 9 cm at the footrest and adjacent footwell, and the instrument panel and upper hinge pillar intruded 7-8 cm. Injury measures Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity. Restraints and dummy kinematics The dummy’s movement was well controlled. The dummy’s head loaded the frontal airbag, which stayed in front of the dummy until rebound. The side curtain airbag deployed and has sufficient forward coverage to protect the head from contact with side structure and outside objects. The side torso airbag also deployed.

► 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.
