Detroit, Michigan – The all-new 2012 Chevrolet Sonic has been named a Top Safety Pick by the U.S. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

The Sonic achieved “good” scores in front, side and rear impact tests, in a roof strength test, and has standard electronic stability control.

The Sonic has ten airbags and uses a body structure incorporating a single welded side ring unit. More than 60 per cent of the vehicle’s safety cage consists of high-strength steel, Chevrolet said.
