A low roofline, thick pillars, and small exterior mirrors make backing up and changing lanes more challenging than they ought to be.
ConsumerGuide

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.

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.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
