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.
2012 Chevrolet Orlando - ESC TEST
Electronic stability control is standard on the Orlando and met Euro NCAP's
requirements. There is a seatbelt reminder system for the driver and
passenger, but not for the rear seats. The Orlando is not available with a
speed limitation device.
2012 Hyundai i40 CRASH TEST
The passenger compartment of the i40 remained stable in the frontal impact.
A driver knee airbag is standard equipment and dummy readings indicated
good protection of the knees, femurs and pelvis for both front seat
occupants. The steering column was considered a potential risk but Hyundai
demonstrated that other parts of the facia offered good protection. The i40
scored maximum points in the side barrier test and provided adequate chest
protection in the more severe side pole impact. The seat and head restraint
provided good protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a
Forward movement of the 3 year dummy, sat in a forward-facing restraint,
was not excessive and both the 3 year and the 18 month dummies were
properly contained in the side impact test. The front passenger airbag can
be disabled to allow a rearward-facing restraint to be used in that seating
position and the i40 provides clear information to the driver regarding the
status of the airbag. A permanently attached label gives a clear warning of
the dangers of using a rearward facing seat in the passenger seat without
first disabling the airbag.
► 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.

The Chevrolet Aveo boasts high levels of standard equipment, and a new,
motorbike-inspired interior. The funky rev counter and LED speedometer add
a sporty touch to the Aveo's cabin, while the coupe-inspired styling,
including hidden rear door handles and aggressive headlights, adds even
more kerbside appeal. The Aveo is more practical than the excellent Suzuki
Swift, and with prices set to undercut many of the class leaders, Chevrolet
has created a tempting package. A new diesel version should also be one of
the most frugal cars in its class too.
