Big, powerful brakes provide short, stable stops
ConsumerGuideAuto

The Chevrolet 2008 Corvette has yet to be evaluated by any government agency with respect to its ability to withstand a crash. Of course, safety remains on the minds of all GM designers, and the Corvette comes equipped with some outstanding safety features.

As been noted elsewhere on TheCarConnection.com, the best way to survive a car crash is not to get in one in the first place, and the Chevy Corvette 2008 has a number of ways to help you do just that. ConsumerGuideAuto notes the stopping power, saying the "powerful brakes provide short, stable stops" and that it comes with anti-lock brakes and traction control.

Edmunds calls the active stability control, which monitors traction and engine power, "superb" in the Chevrolet; 2008 also means that "side-impact airbags are optional, but head curtain airbags are not available," which Cars.com confirms.

Conclusion

The 2008 Chevrolet Corvette has many safety systems, but lacks curtain airbags and hasn’t been tested for crash performance.

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.
