2013 Nissan GT-R Safety

9.0
Safety

Just as with nearly any other low-production, high-price supercar, there are no actual crash-test ratings for the 2013 Nissan GT-R.

Neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) have smashed a GT-R, thankfully, but that leaves us all to wonder about the GT-R's safety.

There are still no crash tests to go on in judging the GT-R's safety; but it's no slouch in features.

Feature-wise, you'll find side airbags and curtain airbags, while all-wheel drive and stability control will help guard against any temptation from the GT-R's massive output. While you'd be foolish to turn these systems off on the street, these highly evolved traction and stability controls can be deactivated out on the track.

A RearView Monitor is now standard on all models--which is a good thing, as in past models we've found that the GT-R's thick rear pillars can get in the way of outward visibility.
