2012 Nissan GT-R Safety

Safety

As is the case with most low-volume, high-dollar supercars, the 2012 Nissan GT-R is without objective safety data to back up its promise.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) hasn't demolished a GT-R yet, thank goodness, and neither has the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

No crash-test data is available, but the 2012 Nissan GT-R comes from a good safety place.

Still, the GT-R sports all the advanced technology features you'd expect, including side airbags,  curtain airbags, and its own exotics flavors of all-wheel drive and stability control. Those features will help any driver maintain control over the GT-R's massive output. Those highly evolved traction and stability controls can also be turned off completely for track-style driving, and there's no sense in turning them off on public roads.

Visibility is a bit of an issue to the rear, because of the GT-R's thicker pillars. A rearview camera is available as an accessory.
