The new Chevrolet Trax featured in the latest EuroNCAP safety session. Chevrolet`s proposition for the small SUV segment is the same as the Opel Mokka and, where appropriate, test results have been carried over from that vehicle. Where Euro NCAP's test methods have changed from 2012 to 2013, new tests have been done. The overall score was, as in the case of Mokka, of 5 stars.

The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of the driver and passenger. Chevrolet showed that a similar level of protection would be provided for occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. The Trax scored maximum points in the side barrier test, with good protection of all body regions. In the more severe side pole impact, protection of the chest was adequate and that of the head, abdomen and pelvis was good. The seat and head restraint provided good protection against whiplash injury in the event of a rear-end impact.

In the frontal impact, forward movement of the head of the 3 year dummy, sat in a forward facing restraint, was not excessive. In the side impact, both dummies were properly contained by the protective shells of their restraints, minimising the risk of head contact with parts of the car's interior. All of the child restraints for which the car is designed could be correctly installed in the Trax. 

The bonnet surface provided good protection in most areas likely to be struck by the head of a struck child. Protection for taller pedestrians was predominantly adequate or marginal. The bumper provided good protection in all areas tested and scored maximum points. However, the front edge of the bonnet scored no points for its protection of the pelvis area, offering poor protection across the car's width.

Electronic stability control is standard equipment on the Trax and met Euro NCAP's test requirements. There is a standard-fit seatbelt reminder on the driver, front passenger and rear seats. The Trax also has a driver-set active speed limitation device as standard equipment.
