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.

Crash Test 2012 - Chevrolet Sonic / Aveo (Frontal Offset) IIHS
Chevrolet Sonic 2012 models 2012 Chevrolet Sonic: good performance in front, side, rollover, and rear tests and standard electronic stability control FRONTAL OFFSET TEST OVERALL EVALUATION: Structure/safety cage Injury measures Restraints/dummy kinematics Head/neck Chest Leg/foot, left Leg/foot, right Important: Frontal crash test ratings can be compared only among vehicles of similar weight. Good Acceptable Marginal Poor Test details: The Chevrolet Sonic was introduced in the 2012 model year as a replacement for the Chevrolet Aveo. Restraints/dummy kinematics — Dummy movement was well controlled. The driver side curtain airbag deployed during the crash. After the dummy moved forward into the frontal airbag, its head contacted the side curtain airbag. Injury measures — Measures taken from the neck, chest, and both legs indicate low risk of injuries to these body regions in a crash of this severity. A high head acceleration occurred when the dummy's head hit the steering wheel through the airbag, indicating that head injuries would be possible.
