Comments

The Euro NCAP rating also applies to the estate version of the Chevrolet Aveo

Adult occupant
The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact. Dummy readings indicated good protection for the knees and femurs of both the driver and front passenger dummies and Chevrolet showed that a similar level of protection would be offered to occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different seating positions. The Aveo scored maximum points in the side barrier test, all body regions being well protected. Even in the more severe pole test, the chest was adequately protected. The seat and head restraint provided good protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision.

Child occupant
Maximum points were scored in the dynamic tests for the protection of the 3 year infant. The passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. Clear information is provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag and the system was rewarded by Euro NCAP. Permanently attached labels also provide clear warnings that the passenger airbag should be disabled before a rearward facing child seat can be used in that position.

Pedestrian
The bumper provided mostly good protection to pedestrians' legs. However, the front edge of the bonnet was predominantly poor. The bonnet provided good protection in most areas likely to be struck by the head of child but was mostly poor in those areas where an adult's head would strike.

Safety assist
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
