Excellent. From electronic stability control to front and side curtain air bags, the technology-laden car will keep you safe.
Cars.com

Antilock disc brakes and side airbags are standard, as is the "Active Handling" stability control system, which provides noninvasive assistance and includes a "competitive" driving mode that gives the expert driver more leeway while still maintaining a safety net.
Edmunds

All Corvettes now feature side airbags, while manual transmission models come outfitted with standard launch control.
Kelley Blue Book

The 2013 Chevrolet Corvette hasn't been crash-tested by either the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) or the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety)--but then, neither have most other high-end sports cars.

All Corvettes come with anti-lock brakes, Active Handling stability control and traction control, dual front and side airbags, immensely capable brakes, and agile handling--all the better to help avoid an accident in the first place.

One issue we've found with the Corvette, though not everyone will mind, is visibility. Rearward visibility through the hatch and forward visibility over the long hood and flared fenders can make it hard to place the car in close quarters or see nearby obstacles. Another potential drawback for some is the lack of side-curtain airbags.

Conclusion

Fantastic handling, very good braking, and a strong set of standard safety equipment lend a sense of confidence and security to the 2013 Corvette.

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.
