Posted on Apr 22, 2014 by

The GMC Terrain with available forward collision alert technology, earned Top Safety Pick+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety in its small overlap front crash test.

The test, in which 25 percent of a vehicle’s front end on the driver side strikes a 5-foot-high rigid barrier at 64 km/h (40 mph), is designed to replicate what happens when the front corner of a vehicle strikes another vehicle or an object like a tree or a utility pole.

The criteria for 2014 Top Safety Pick+ status was revised to include vehicles offering a frontal crash protection system meeting IIHS requirements, as well as achieving a Good rating – IIHS’ highest classification – in four of five crash tests, and no less than an Acceptable rating in the fifth test. The 2014 Terrain received Good ratings in all five crash tests.

Along with forward collision alert, the Terrain is equipped with six standard air bags, including dual frontal air bags, head curtain side air bags and pelvic/thorax seat-mounted side air bags; as well as a standard rear-vision camera that helps drivers identify objects behind the vehicle.

With a starting price of AED 99,000 for the 2014 GMC Terrain, it really is a steal.
