The 2014 Chevrolet Volt has received a 2014 Top Safety Pick+ award by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. It is the only vehicle among 12 small cars tested to have earned the recognition, making it one of the safest small cars—whether gas-powered or electric—on the road.
To earn a Top Safety Pick+ award, the 2014 Volt scored the highest possible rating of “Good” in multiple IIHS crash tests, including moderate front overlap, side, roof strength, head restraints, and seats.
It also scored the 2nd highest possible rating of “Acceptable” in the small overlap front test, the most difficult of any head-on tests performed by either the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration or the IIHS.
“The Volt’s crashworthiness performance puts it in the top tier for small car safety,” said Joe Nolan, IIHS senior vice president for vehicle research. “GM should be commended for the Volt’s performance in the small overlap front test because this car was designed before that challenging test was introduced.”
