2017 Chevy Volt in South Florida
The 2017 Volt LT has sweeping lines and beautiful curves. The car was designed with aerodynamics in mind resulting in an efficient flow of air from the front to the back of the car. Being able to cut down on drag helps reduce the amount of strain on the engine which makes any vehicle more efficient and productive.
The car’s 17-inch 5-spoke painted aluminum wheels give the car good height from the ground, a quality that many small sedans lack. The slanted front grille is striking to look at as the Chevy emblem sits proudly between the LED headlights. The car’s side grooves and the rounded tail give the “green” car a sportier look. Buyers have a range of options in premium colors like Siren Red Tintcoat, Kinetic Blue Metallic, and many Iridescent Pearl Tricoat.
The interior is laced with an all-black finish accented in chrome. The 8-inch digital dash touchscreen stands out as one of the car’s best interior features and the big bold display screen has a number of control features right at arms length. The car is equipped with SiriusXM satellite radio and a 6-speaker audio system. One of the most technologically advanced features is the car’s built in 4G LTE WiFi and a keyless push button start.
The black leather wrapped steering wheel matches the black cloth seats. Though a smaller car, the Volt has decent room and it can comfortably fit up to five passengers.
The Volt is powered by a 1.5-liter direct-injected 3-cylinder engine that is built for efficiency. The car is considered to be included in the plug-in hybrid category since it is not 100% electric. The car is able to preserve electric energy because it is powered by two electric motors. One of the motors is called the traction motor and the other is the generator motor. Last year’s model was the 2016 “Green Car of the Year.” The car’s battery range gets up to 53 miles on a fully charged battery and Chevy estimates that the average driver will be able to go 1,000 miles between fill-ups with regular charging. The total range when the car is fully charged and a full tank of gas gives drivers up to 420 miles. The 120-volt cord gives about 13 hours of usage.
Safety Features and Technology
As good as the car looks and runs, it hosts many new safety features using some of the industry’s leading technology. Advanced technology features include Teen Driver Technology, Lane Keep Assist and Rear Cross Traffic Alert. Lane Keep Assist helps drivers avoid crashes by alerting the driver of any drifting over the lanes and alerting when no signal have been used in a certain amount of time. Rear Cross Traffic Alert is implemented and activated when the car is in reverse; warning them if any traffic is crossing behind the car. In case of an accident, the car’s high-strength steel is used and keeps the car light, yet strong, and the car is surrounded by 10 air bags. Additionally, buyers receive five years of complimentary OnStar services on the basic plan and six months of complimentary OnStar Guidance.
The Volt’s car battery and electric components is covered by an 8-year or 100,000-mile warranty, and the car’s powertrain is covered by a 5-year or 60,000-mile warranty.
