Usually, when a vehicle boasts "safety," it's fair to assume that the model is also rather tame. When it comes to the Chevrolet Camaro however, this couldn't be farther from the truth. Until now the Camaro has largely been known for its powerful ponies, quarter-mile times and overall cunning edge. While this is still true, the upcoming variant has received an additional description as the first vehicle to earn a perfect safety testing score by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
Surprised? We aren't. Though "safe" may be the last attribute you'd think to attach to a Camaro, Southworth Chevrolet has seen what Chevrolet is capable of. The fact that the automaker can create something that's both smoldering and safe isn't shocking.
Now, before we get ahead of ourselves, let us give credit where credit is due. Fourteen other vehicles also received a 5-Star Safety Rating from NHTSA for 2011. But the difference between these models and the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro is rather significant. Out of those tested, the Camaro is the first to score a perfect rating across all six categories: frontal barrier crash for driver, frontal barrier crash for passenger, side crash for driver, side crash for passenger, rollover and overall.
Of course, Southworth Chevrolet would be willing to put any new Chevrolet model to the test. That's because we have so much faith in the automaker's dedication and precision.
