There are no crash-test results for the 2010 Dodge Viper, from either NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) or the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety). And while it offers standard dual front airbags and anti-lock brakes, its minimal safety gear and its purist approach to performance mean anyone shopping for safety features should look elsewhere.

Reviews read by TheCarConnection.com show that the Dodge Viper makes available very little in the way of safety equipment. ConsumerGuide says "dual front airbags" are standard, but Edmunds notes that "no stability control or side airbags" are offered. Cars.com adds "available safety features include all-disc antilock Brembo brakes and adjustable pedals," but that's it. The Viper offers no stability control or side and curtain airbags.

To make matters worse, visibility is remarkably poor. Cars.com says visibility is hindered by the fact that "the trunklid, head restraints and roll bars are pretty high" in the convertible, "so it's tough to see behind you by turning your head," but reversing is "workable through prodigious use of the rearview mirrors."

Conclusion

The 2010 Dodge Viper hasn't been crash-tested, and it doesn't offer much in the way of safety features.

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.
