The 2017 Chevrolet Volt is the latest model of the affordable plug-in hybrid sedan. Boasting a battery range of 53 miles and a total range of 420 miles, there’s little doubt this car is perfect for long trips. With most drivers traveling more than 1,000 miles between fill ups with regular charging, the Chevrolet Volt is incredibly popular for its fuel economy. 1,000 miles is a lot of ground to cover, which is why the Volt comes with a host of available top safety features.
Safety technology is all the rage in the modern automotive market and for good reason. Not only does safety technology save lives, it can also help prevent collisions altogether. The Volt’s available Lane Keep Assist does this by adjusting the steering wheel if a driver starts to drift out of their lane without a turn signal.
Parking lots can be a hazard in and of themselves, which is why Rear Cross Traffic Alert warns drivers if there’s a vehicle approaching from either side when reversing from a parking space.
Forward Collision Alert and low-speed Front Automatic Braking go hand-in-hand to help prevent collisions altogether. If the driver fails to react to a slow-moving vehicle, the system will hit the brakes to help reduce the damage done or avoid the collision altogether.
Combined with the standard 10 air bags, a lightweight frame, and OnStar Automatic Crash Response, the Chevrolet Volt is one of the safest cars on the road.
