2012 Camaro Receives PERFECT Score by NHTSA

The 2012 Chevy Camaro is a sports car. That tends to mean the makers forget about most things other than horsepower, quarter-mile times and smoky burnouts. As such, “safe” would have to be somewhere near the bottom of attributes. Or is it?
Nov. 18, 2011 - PRLog -- But here it is in black and white (and yellow): The 2012 Chevy Camaro coupe is the FIRST vehicle to earn a perfect score in National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s safety testing since the federal testing procedures were revised in 2011, according to Examiner.com. While other vehicles have earned an overall NHTSA 5-Star safety rating, the Camaro was the first to score a PERFECT 5-star rating in ALL six test categories. Those include frontal barrier crash test ratings for the driver and passenger, side crash ratings for the driver and passenger, a rollover rating and the vehicle’s overall rating.

While the report indicates that NHTSA has not yet tested its entire slate of 2012 model year vehicles, of the 46 that have completed the process, only 14 have received a 5-Star Safety Rating. Even if the Chevy Camaro’s safety score is an outlier among the other accolades it has received over the years – you know, the NHRA, Trans-Am and SCCA hardware and such – kudos to Chevy.

100 years of excellence and we’re still cruisin’! Check out our 2012 Camaro inventory!
