2008 Chevrolet Colorado Safety

7.0
On Safety

The 2008 Chevrolet Colorado has some of the most impressive safety ratings in the class, but lacks some important features.

The four-door Chevrolet Colorado gets five-star crash scores from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), while other versions get four stars. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) ranks the Colorado as “good” for all front impacts, and "marginal" for side impacts.

The 2008 Chevrolet Colorado gets good crash-test scores; side airbags and stability control aren’t available at all, though.

All versions of the 2008 Chevrolet Colorado offer standard anti-lock brakes, but side curtain airbags are optional and stability control is not offered. Cars.com adds, "side-impact airbags for the front seats are not available."

The reviewers at Edmunds find the inclusion of "OnStar emergency communications" that are now standard on all models a welcome addition to the 2008 Chevrolet Colorado.
