BAY CITY, Mich.- You may have noticed that there is an increasing number of small New Chevrolet Cars on the road as the weather remains unreliable, but Bay City Area Chevrolet Owners can drive confidently in conditions ranging from tropical storms to icy streets, knowing Small Chevy Cars Can Handle Winter.
The stereotype is that smaller vehicles can’t handle bad weather. However, Chevrolet is disproving these beliefs by testing the Chevy Cruze, Sonic and Spark in conditions beyond snow and ice, enabling class-competitive safety, and equipping the line-up with more advanced technologies than ever before. The Chevy small car trio also undergoes a variety of durability tests too. In addition to live road testing, Chevrolet also simulates unpredictable situations in a variety of tests at GM’s Milford Proving Ground. Winter-mimicking tests like the Salt Mist Facility, Salt Splash Road, and Corrosion Booth repeatedly expose vehicles’ exteriors and underbodies to salt, water and dirt.
GM dealers, including your Bay City Area Chevrolet Dealer, have seen an 11 percent sales increase of Chevrolet small cars since last year. This is due to the vehicles being designed for consumers, climates and terrains around the country. Coupled with a number of advanced technologies, Chevy small car owners can feel safe knowing that even our smallest cars will perform well when inclement weather rolls in.
Both the Chevrolet Cruze and Chevy Sonic have earned 5-star overall safety ratings by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, with the Sonic being the only car in its segment to achieve this. In addition, both vehicles also received Top Safety Pick designation from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
Chevrolet small cars keep drivers safe out on the road due in part to similar safety technologies that are found in larger vehicles and SUVs, like standard StabiliTrak electronic stability control with rollover mitigation, traction control, and anti-lock brakes. Not to mention, all of the vehicles include six months of standard OnStar, with specially trained emergency advisors that can send the vehicle’s precise GPS location to emergency responders, just in case.
