Adult occupant

The Chevrolet Trax is the same as the Opel Mokka and, where appropriate, test results have been carried over from that vehicle. Where Euro NCAP's test methods have changed from 2012 to 2013, new tests have been done. The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of the driver and passenger. Chevrolet showed that a similar level of protection would be provided for occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. The Trax scored maximum points in the side barrier test, with good protection of all body regions. In the more severe side pole impact, protection of the chest was adequate and that of the head, abdomen and pelvis was good. The seat and head restraint provided good protection against whiplash injury in the event of a rear-end impact.

Child occupant

All of the child restraints for which the car is designed could be correctly installed in the Trax. The passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward-facing restraint to be used in the front passenger seat. Clear information is provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag and the system was rewarded. The dangers of using a rearward-facing restraint in that seating positions without first disabling the airbag is clearly and permanently indicated.

Pedestrian

The bonnet surface provided good protection in most areas likely to be struck by the head of a struck child. Protection for taller pedestrians was predominantly adequate or marginal. The bumper provided good protection in all areas tested and scored maximum points. However, the front edge of the bonnet scored no points for its protection of the pelvis area, offering poor protection across the car's width.

Safety assist

Electronic stability control is standard equipment on the Trax and met Euro NCAP's test requirements. There is a standard-fit seatbelt reminder on the driver, front passenger and rear seats. The Trax also has a driver-set active speed limitation device as standard equipment.
