Phoenix Valley Chevrolet - Highest Rated Safety Chevy SUVs We were delighted to discover Chevrolet has some of the country’s highest safety-rated SUVs in its 2017 lineup. Because we know that everyone wants to drive safe and protective vehicle, we’ve decided to highlight these safe Chevy vehicles below.

About the Ratings

The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) assigns one to five stars to all cars sold in the United States. These ratings are in four categories:
  1. Rollover
  2. Side Crash
  3. Frontal Crash
  4. Overall
These ratings and their subcategories provide apples-to-apples comparisons across brands. We investigated Chevrolet’s rankings and were glad to see the manufacturer offers some of the highest SUV safety ratings in the industry.
