5 Active Safety Systems Make the 2018 Trax the Safest Small SUV in Chevrolet Car Dealerships

With its unique approach to vehicle safety, Chevrolet has had a hand in keeping drivers, passengers and pedestrians out of harm’s way throughout the years. Prevent, protect, respond—this is the philosophy that drives their efforts to ensure safety and reliability in every vehicle, and it is most evident in the 2018 Chevrolet Trax. For this year model, this beloved small SUV proudly rolls off the lot with a host of safety features including stability control, anti-lock brakes, 10 standard airbags, seatbelt pretensioners, ignition disabling device in case of unwanted vehicle intrusion, and more.

Even with all of these security measures in place, Chevrolet kicks it up a notch by equipping the 2018 Trax with five active safety systems. Read on to learn more about them.


Forward Collision Alert

The 2018 Trax earned top marks with crashworthiness tests from the IIHS and NHTSA, but it leaves nothing up to chance when it comes to safety. Chevrolet engineers saw it fit to make Forward Collision Alert a standard feature on the Trax Premier. This advanced system uses camera technology to scan for slowing vehicles in your path. It then alerts you so you can avoid an imminent front end crash.

Side Blind Zone Alert

Side Blind Zone Alert is a smart system designed to help drivers as they change lanes. Using short-range radar sensors, the 2018 Trax can detect if another vehicle is in your blind zone areas. With this system in place, you become more aware of your surroundings.

Lane Departure Warning

Lane Departure Warning works alongside Side Blind Zone Alert to help drivers maneuver the Trax expertly especially on busy roads. As a standard feature on the Premier, this system warns you if you are crossing a detected lane marking without using a turn signal. This prevents you from unintentionally steering out of your lane.

Rear Park Assist

The new Trax also comes with a handy Rear Park Assist system. Using ultrasonic sensors and a rear vision camera, this feature warns you if you are closing in on a stationary object at low speeds. It displays information and guiding lines on the screen to aid you while you are backing up.

Rear Cross Traffic Alert

Reversing out of a driveway or parking space is also a breeze inside the 2018 Trax with its Rear Cross Traffic Alert feature. Radar sensors detect other vehicles approaching from both directions while the rear vision camera display gives you a clear view of the back. This system also gives out audible warnings as it senses oncoming vehicles.
