With new, more rigorous NHTSA crash tests in effect, General Motors has explored solutions to ways its vehicles can reach or retain a five-star crash safety rating. One solution has turned out to be what the company calls a Dynamic Locking Latch Plate (DLLP) seat belt design.
Essentially the same in appearance as the the outgoing seatbelts, these new models are made to stabilize occupants in the event of a crash more securely, while at the same time transferring trauma away from the chest.
Models that feature the new system include the Lambda and Theta-based crossovers, the Chevy Malibu and Impala, the Cadillac CTS line, Buick Regal and LaCrosse.
