2012 Chevrolet Traverse Safety

9.0
Safety

The 2012 Traverse is one of the safest vehicles on the road today and earns nearly perfect crash-test scores.

In crash-testing, it earns top 'good' scores from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), as well as Top Safety Pick status, and the federal government gives it five stars, with a four-star rating for front impacts and five for side impacts.

The 2012 Chevrolet Traverse feels solid and sturdy, and that impression is verified with top-notch crash-test scores.

Along with standard airbags, anti-lock brakes and traction control, Bluetooth and parking sensors, the Traverse can be fitted with a rearview camera, to help with its middling visibility to the rear quarters.

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.
