enormous rear-three-quarter blind spot
A low roofline, thick pillars, and small exterior mirrors make backing up and changing lanes more challenging than they ought to be.
With a car that's capable of serious speed comes a sharper concern for safety, and the 2012 Camaro doesn't disappoint. Though the 2012 Convertible hasn't been rated by the NHTSA, the Coupe scores top marks of five stars in all categories of crash testing by the government. The IIHS hasn't rated the 2012 Camaro at all.
Backing up the Coupe's strong safety figures is a long list of standard safety features, including stability and traction control, eight standard airbags (including thorax, pelvic side-impact, and side-curtain airbags), anti-lock brakes, six months of OnStar with Automatic Crash Response, and a head-up display that puts navigation, speed, and more on the windshield to keep eyes on the road--and occupants out of trouble in the first place.
The 2012 Chevrolet Camaro scores top marks in NHTSA crash tests in coupe form, and all models come with a strong set of standard safety equipment.
