SAFETY | 9 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

In brake testing, we've recorded a best 60-0 mph stopping distance of 98 feet, a very short distance indeed.

The Nissan GT-R has the safety equipment we expect to find in any modern luxury car, and some necessary features we routinely see now in sportscars and supercars.

Along with the mandatory airbags and stability control, the GT-R also has all-wheel drive and stability control with several modes that allow conservative street driving and hair-raising track runs. The traction aids can be disabled, but you'd be foolish to do that on the street--its massive power can overpower even its neutral, balanced handling.

In technology, the GT-R brings a standard rearview camera. It's almost a necessity, since the GT-R's thick rear pillars can get in the way of outward visibility. Bluetooth is also included.

Despite all this, the GT-R's absolute safety ratings are a little cloudy. As is the case with nearly every other low-production supercar, there are no actual crash-test ratings available. Neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) have intentionally damaged a GT-R, and we don't expect that to change, given its extreme rarity.


Safety features are fine for the price, but the Nissan GT-R hasn't been crash-tested yet.

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.
