Expert Quotes:

'Good,' frontal offset; 'good,' side impact
IIHS

Five stars Overall; four stars in Frontal Crash; five stars in Side Crash
NHTSA

I would have liked the backup camera to be located in that center stack, though; having it pop up in the rearview mirror while you’re backing up is annoying and messes with my field of vision

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 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.

Conclusion

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.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
