Driving in a car is so much more than getting quickly and conveniently from one place to another; it’s also about how you and your loved ones can travel as safely as possible.

Every vehicle on the road today is equipped with safety features that are specifically designed to keep every driver and passenger protected. But Chevrolet drivers, in particular, can rest assured that the car they get to work in, the car they drive their children to school in, and the car they take family vacations in, is the gold standard when it comes to protecting you and your loved ones while out on the streets.

Here are a few common (and potentially life-saving) safety features that come with your Chevrolet:

Automatic Braking

A Chevrolet vehicle can anticipate (and prevent) a potential accident better than any car on the market today; this is largely thanks to their innovative methods of automatic braking. If a driver has not already applied the brakes in the event that another vehicle or a pedestrian is suddenly in your path, the system can alert the driver and may even automatically apply the brakes in the event the driver’s reactions aren’t quick enough to expect the unexpected.
Rear-Vision Camera

Rear Vision Camera

We’ve all been in this situation probably more times than we would like; you’re backing out of the drive-way or a parking spot in a crowded lot, and out of nowhere, the trash cans at the end of your driveway are on your bumper, or that shopping cart looked much further away in your rearview mirror. Fortunately, circumstances like this are a thing of the past thanks to Chevrolet’s rear vision camera. According to the Chevrolet brand, when in reverse, this feature gives you a view of the scene directly behind the vehicle or inside rearview mirror display to help avoid collisions with nearby objects.

Lane Change Alert

You were probably taught that when it comes to driving, especially when you are on a freeway, that it’s best to practice defensive driving. That’s because no matter how reliable of a driver you are, you can’t guarantee that others on the road are taking your and their safety as seriously. This is one of the many reasons why Chevrolet’s lane change alert is a revolutionary safety feature. Lane Change alert can provide side mirror alerts to help drivers avoid crashing into a moving vehicle if a car is either rapidly approaching or if something is in the driver’s blind spot.

There are others like Adaptive Cruise Control, High-Definition (HD) Surround Vision and Blind Zone Cameras, just to name a few.
