Most people know Sonic as the most fun-to-drive car and offers an EPA estimated 40 MPG highway1. But did you know Sonic was also designed to exceed expectations in terms of segment-leading safety features? The proof is in the rating.

The 2012 Sonic is the first and only vehicle in its class to receive a 5-star Overall Vehicle Score for Safety from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)2. Both sedan and hatchback were tested and both scored 5-stars—the highest rating possible. The score is formulated based on results from frontal and side crash tests in addition to rollover resistance testing.

Starting with 2011 models, NHTSA introduced tougher tests and more rigorous requirements for its 5-star ratings. Safety feature performance and crash-avoidance technologies like 10-standard air bags3, Rollover Mitigation, StabiliTrak Electronic Stability Control and OnStar with Automatic Crash Response4 were just some of the reasons this subcompact achieved such a high mark.
