As is the case with most new models, the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro has not yet been crash tested by either NHTSA or the IIHS. However, the Chevrolet Camaro earns some major points in this category for its long list of standard safety features.
Reviews read by TheCarConnection.com give the Chevrolet Camaro lots of credit for the fact that all of its safety features come standard on even the base LS model. Reviewers at Cars.com report that the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro's "standard safety features include side curtain airbags, antilock brakes and an electronic stability system." TheCarConnection.com points out that dynamic stability control comes standard on all 2010 Chevy Camaros.
Autoblog points to the tremendous stopping power of the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro as one safety feature that it can hold over some its competitors, reporting that the Camaro offers "optional Brembo brakes, which aren't even an option on the Mustang Track Pack."
Unfortunately, the 2010 Chevy Camaro suffers from one major safety flaw: visibility. Reviews read by TheCarConnection.com point out that styling takes precedence over driver visibility in some cases, which leads to what Car and Driver terms the "horrendous vision out the rear." Automobile Magazine also acknowledges that "there's a huge blind spot in the C-pillar," and "the view out the front is like looking through a mail slot." These issues could potentially lead to some serious run-ins on the road, but that is the price one pays for a car as stunning as the 2010 Chevy Camaro.
The 2010 Chevrolet Camaro has all the right standard safety features, but it's held back by poor rearward visibility.
