2014 Chevrolet SS Safety

8.0
Safety

The 2014 Chevrolet SS doesn't have any U.S. crash tests to back up its occupant safety, but GM provides plenty of reason to believe that this is one of the safer sport sedans you could choose.

Chevrolet includes a rear vision camera system as standard on the SS, along with eight standard airbags (knee bags for driver and front passenger). But that's only the start; the SS has a very impressive list of active-safety features, including forward collision alert, lane departure warning, side blind zone alert, and rear cross traffic alert are all standard.

Crash tests haven't been conducted for the SS, and they probably won't be; but GM has a good record with its latest global cars and they've piled on the active-safety features here.

This is also the first Chevrolet with an available Automatic Parking Assist (auto-steering) system, which will turn the wheel (after it identifies a spot) as you control the throttle, transmission, and brake.

Separately, GM redesigned many of the the SS's underpinnings versus the previous platform (that the Pontiac G8 GXP had been built on), including stronger, lighter-weight materials and a bolstered front structure.
