2017 Chevrolet Volt
The Chevrolet Volt offers the driver and passenger's all-around comfort, with an ergonomic design ensuring a familiar touch. With leather or soft-to-the-touch material on most surfaces, it provides comfort backed with high safety technology.
A comfortable economic solution
The new Chevrolet Volt hybrid must be regarded as being among the best economic options if you are considering an electric car; especially if you intend on using it for long journeys. This vehicle offers a variety of owner and passenger advantages, including an impressive electric powered range, some great acceleration, as well as a smooth ride while enjoying the effective infotainment system.
A smooth running road-holder that responds well to the driver, the Chevrolet Volt is helped by it being a solid vehicle with excellent reactive steering capabilities. Many could be surprised by its sports-type feeling and how the drive-modes determine the vehicle road handling. While the normal drive mode is directed towards providing a smooth and comfortable ride, the Chevrolet Volt sports mode offers you a drive that is true sports oriented.
Innovation and versatility
Arguably, one of the preferred features associated with the new Chevrolet Volt is the "hold" mode. Its an innovative application that permits you to store the battery charge if and when needed in a particular situation when it will provide the greatest benefit; for example, city driving! Accordingly, you are not forced to discharge your battery when you unplug the vehicle.
The technology associated with the power-train is especially impressive, and this technological aspect is also inherent in the interior of the Chevrolet Volt. All controls related to the infotainment system, vehicle information display, digital speedometer and the information display are efficiently and effectively integrated into the steering wheel and dash.
Some excellent entertainment is provided by way of the 8-inch infotainment system that features Chevrolet "MyLink" radio and "Apple CarPlay." The controls in the Volt are among the best available, with a highly conveniently located range of buttons and touch screen controls.
To date, neither the 2016 nor 2017 models Volt have been rated by the NHTSA or the IIHS. However, the 2015 model gained high ratings from both of these agencies. The NHTSA awarded the Chevrolet Volt five-stars overall, while the IIHS gave the vehicle a "Top Safety Pick" rating.
The new Chevrolet Volt offers as standard, airbags, ABS, traction and stability control, a pedestrian safety signal, as well as a rear vision camera, automatic parking assist, and tire pressure monitor. Fitted as optional extras are Lane keep assist, forward collision alert, rear cross traffic alert, side blind zone and lane change alert, and low-speed front automatic braking!
