In its first year of eligibility for the IIHS’s Top Safety Pick, the all-new 2014 Chevy Spark really shone during the crash tests. As a matter of fact, the Spark became the first minicar to earn the award for the 2014 model year.
Over 62% of the Spark’s underbody and 42% of its upper body is made of lightweight, high-strength steel that absorbs and distributes impact energy around occupants. There are also driver and passenger front knee airbags to reduce the risk of injuries to lower extremities in frontal crashes in addition to dual-stage frontal airbags, seat-mounted side airbags, and side curtain airbags.
In order to earn the Top Safety Pick badge, the Spark successfully accomplished the highest possible score of “good” in the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety’s moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraint tests, as well as “acceptable” in the new small overlap test.
So if you’re in the market for a safe minicar this year, you’ll find the best option here at Dale Earnhardt Chevy with the 2014 Spark.
