Chevy's Small Sonic Earns Top Safety Rating

Chevrolet has earned bragging rights this week when the National Traffic Safety Administration gave the small car a 5-star crash rating, better than its  Ford Fiesta rival better than some Asian competitors in its category. Does the fact that the Sonic earned a 5-star crash safety rating mean that it is as safe as a large car or Suv with a 5-star rating? No in fact, the rating just means that is has the highest possible rating among all the small cars that NHTSA has tested.
The Sonic's standard safety features include 10 airbags,traction control, anti-lock brakes and it comes with General Motor's Onstar system with automatic crash response-a service that alerts emergency first responders when the airbags deploy in the car.
