NAPERVILLE, Ill., June 8, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The 2013 Chevy Malibu Eco is now the only 2013 midsize sedan that can boast the title of earning a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and a 2012 Top Safety Pick from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Both of these are the highest safety awards that can be achieved by a vehicle and it is a great honor. The 2013 Chevy Malibu Eco in Naperville, IL is available at Chevrolet of Naperville right now.
A Top Safety Pick award is achieved by determining how well a vehicle protects its occupants in a crash. The test includes a frontal and side test as well as a roof strength test. Seat and head restraints are also tested by rear crash tests. The Malibu Eco earned top scores of 'good' in all the tests to become a Top Safety Pick.
Earning the Overall Vehicle Score from the NHTSA is no easy task either. The government's more stringent testing that began in 2011 called the New Car Assessment Program tests both frontal and sides of the vehicle. Rollover resistance is also tested and then combined with the other scores to determine the overall score. The Malibu Eco qualified for a five-star score in these tests.
Chevrolet of Naperville is very proud of the Malibu Eco and Chevrolet for earning their seventh Top Safety Pick in 2012. The 2013 Chevy Malibu Eco near Chicago is available at their dealership for a great price. They also carry many other new cars and will soon have the 2013 Chevy Spark in Naperville, IL.
