Sorry, we don’t have any Beretta models left in stock. LOL!
Call our Customer Care Team today at 630-898-9630 for an updated list of the Chevrolet model line-up.
Chevrolet’s halo cars have been graced with their own emblems since the very first Polo White convertible rolled off the line in June of 1953, and the automaker put out a neat animation showing how they’ve changed over the decades.
The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette will bring changes big and small to the iconic Americn performance nameplate. Chevy finally owned the worst-kept secret in automotive history when it confirmed the C8 ‘Vette’s mid-engined migration earlier this year, and today it’s showing off the next generation of the Corvette’s historically unique logo.
Compared to the outgoing, front-engined C7, the C8 logo adds a sharper pitch to the V-shaped design by removing the notch at the bottom and pressing the two branches closer together. There are a few other changes—the pattern on the checkered flag is reversed and darkened, there’s no longer a small line beneath the fleur-de-lis, and the Chevrolet logo is outlined in black rather than silver—but it’s a decidedly cautious update compared to what GM is doing with the new Corvette powertrain.
What started as friendly pair of interlocking flags—one checkered, one bearing the Chevy cross and a fleur-de-lis to honor company founder Louis Chevrolet—has since evolved into a more abstract, angular semaphore leaning heavily into the current car’s high-performance aspirations. This latest version looks to further that image with its raked-back style.
The insurance-funded IIHS consistently pushes the bar higher for automakers to make safer vehicles, and this year, it’s begun to test automatic emergency braking systems.
The first round of tests included 11 popular compact crossover models, and the Chevrolet Equinox impressed. The new tests come as the IIHS places an emphasis on pedestrian safety and includes a relatively simple scale. From best to worst, vehicles can be ranked “Superior,” “Advanced,” “Basic,” or receive no credit.
The organization rated the Chevrolet Equinox as “Advanced” with its optional automatic emergency braking system. Recall, GM does not make automatic emergency braking standard on any vehicle, save for the forthcoming 2020 Cadillac XT6. Even then, a more robust system is optional for buyers.
Chevy’s Equinox joined four other crossovers in earning an “Advanced” rating, which included the Hyundai Kona, Kia Sportage, Mazda CX-5, and Nissan Rogue. Top honors went to the Honda CR-V, Subaru Forester, Toyota RAV-4, and Volvo XC40. The Mitsubishi Outlander earned a “Basic” rating, while the BMW X1 earned no credit.
We encourage you to watch the video above to see how spectacularly BMW failed the test.
The IIHS testing looks at three possible scenarios where automatic emergency braking could help mitigate or even prevent a collision with a pedestrian. The first is an adult pedestrian on the right side of the road entering the street in the path of an oncoming vehicle. The second mimics a child darting into the street from behind two parked vehicles. The third simulates an adult walking in the vehicle’s travel lane near the edge of the road. Here, the pedestrian has his or her back turned away from the cars.
In the safety shakedown, only the Forester and RAV4 avoided the crash dummy in perpendicular tests, which underscores their underlying safety systems.
