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.
