2011 Chevrolet Camaro Safety

8.0
On Safety

Drivers of the 2011 Chevrolet Camaro might be a little more reckless—or, shall we say, exuberant—than your typical sedan driver, so it's good to see that GM hasn't skimped on the safety features. Six airbags are standard (four in front with side-curtain airbags that extend to the second row), as are anti-lock brakes, traction control, and dynamic stability control.

There are limited crash-test results available for the Camaro; the insurance-funded IIHS hasn't yet tested it, but the federal government has, giving it a modest four out of five stars in frontal protection but a commendable five stars in side protection. Because it's such a low, wide vehicle, it earns the federal five-star rollover rating.

There are plenty of measures in the 2011 Chevrolet Camaro to help protect drivers from the unexpected, as well as to keep occupants out of trouble in the first place.

Visibility, however, is a severe issue in the Camaro for all sizes of drivers. The arching roofline will get in the way of tall drivers, while shorter drivers will find it hard to see their way out at some angles due to the high beltline, which rises even higher near the back.

Conclusion: There are plenty of measures in the 2011 Chevrolet Camaro to help protect drivers from the unexpected, as well as to keep occupants out of trouble in the first place.
