Insurance Institute for Highway Safety Names Chevrolet Spark a 2014 Top Safety Pick

The Chevrolet Spark is a small car that’s big on safety and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety agrees. IIHS has named Spark as one of its 2014 Top Safety Picks.

Spark helps keep you and your passengers safe with several safety features. Spark has a total of 10 standard air bags, including front and rear head-curtain side-impact air bags, front and rear seat-mounted torso air bags, as well as separate air bags in the lower instrument panel designed to help reduce the risk of knee injuries to the driver and front passenger in frontal crashes. Spark also features a rollover sensor designed to deploy the head-curtain airbags in the event of an impending rollover. Electronic stability control and antilock brakes also help the driver keep Spark on the road.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) is an independent organization dedicated to reducing the losses — deaths, injuries and property damage — from crashes on the nation's roads. To help ensure this, IIHS evaluates vehicles on two aspects of safety: crashworthiness (how well a vehicle protects its occupants in a crash) and crash avoidance and mitigation (technology that can prevent a crash or lessen its severity).

The 2014 Spark received good ratings in the IIHS moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests, as well as an acceptable rating in the small overlap front test.
