DETROIT – The 2015 Chevrolet Spark, Volt, Malibu and Equinox have been named 2015 Insurance Institute for Highway Safety Top Safety Picks.

The designation goes to models that achieve a good or acceptable rating in the challenging small overlap front test – introduced in 2012 – and a good rating in each of the Institute’s four other crashworthiness evaluations – moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraints.

“Receiving this recognition from IIHS for the 2015 Spark, Volt, Malibu and Equinox is great news for Chevrolet and even greater news for our customers,” said Steven Majoros, director, Chevrolet Cars and Crossover Marketing.

IIHS is a nonprofit organization wholly supported by auto insurers. For 2015, the number of models earning either the Top Safety Pick or Top Safety Pick+ awards rose from 39 to 71 compared to a year ago.

“Consumer metric programs such as IIHS Top Safety Pick and NHTSA NCAP provide our customers with information to make comparisons across vehicle manufacturers for a given market segment. Having these four vehicles named 2015 IIHS Top Safety Picks is a great achievement,” said Jeff Boyer, GM vice president, Global Vehicle Safety.
