Vehicle Safety Rating

What difference does one star make? The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s 5-star rating system is designed to inform drivers of vehicle safety in three primary categories: a Front Crash Test, a Side Crash Test, and a Rollover probability rating. Because the Overall Vehicle Safety Score combines the three scores in these categories, one star can make a big difference.

…And there is a big difference in safety between the 2017 Chevy Traverse and the Dodge Journey. While both crossovers were awarded 5-Stars in their Side Crash Tests and 4-Stars in their Rollover tests, the Chevy Traverse was also awarded 5-Stars in its Front Crash Test while the Dodge Journey was awarded 4-Stars. With an overall vehicle safety score that is greater than the Dodge Journey, the Chevy Traverse is the safest choice.
