2011 Chevrolet Traverse Safety

9.0
On Safety
The 2011 Chevrolet Traverse remains one of the safest vehicles in its class, scoring great results in both major crash-test programs and offering a full set of standard safety features.

Electronic stability control, front airbags, and front side airbags are included in all Traverse models, along with side curtain airbags that help protect all three rows of seats.

Visibility isn't great for all drivers, so we recommend getting the rearview monitor, which makes those pesky reverse parking maneuvers a breeze. The Traverse's special blind-spot mirrors also help, however.

The 2011 Chevrolet Traverse is one of the safest vehicles in this faimly-friendly class, with its large, sturdy structure garnering great crash-test ratings.

The Traverse also scored top marks in the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety crash tests, where it got the highest rating of 'good' in frontal, side, and rear tests, though it hasn't been tested in the new roof-strength category. And in tougher restructured tests from the federal government, the 2011 Chevrolet Traverse receives a top five-star score overall, including four stars for frontal impact and five stars for side impact protection.
