I think it will be 5 star all around. Just feels like a really solid car. We've seen what happens when it gets hit from behind, that looked good for the circumstances. The car is just so solid all around, it would surprise me if it was poorly rated.

When I have talked to GM, folks about the car (or any car GM is deigning) their target has been a FIve Star Crash Rating on all new designs.

This goal has been confirmed by multiple insiders, including those on the site.

I haven't seen any ratings yet posted on http://www.safercar.gov.

I did contact IIHS (http://www.iihs.org/) and asked when they planned on doing their testing of the Camaro. At this time, it isn't on their schedule since they don't typically test "sport coupes" but they would keep it in mind to add later this year if it sells in "high enough" numbers. Guess we'll see if they ever pick one up from a dealer's lot to wreck on our behalf.

Uh, If Crash testing is what is keeping you from buying her a camaro, I would consider putting her in something with a huge bumper on the front and back of it. And something that doesn't go quite as fast.

All you really need to know about the 2010 Camaro crash test results is that they are significantly better than when the 1st Gen Camaro was released:

2010 Camaro Crash Test Safety Results (Partial)

As reported on Homepage.

Crash test results for the 2010 Camaro are finally starting to roll in. In tests conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the Camaro has received a 5-star (the highest possible) rating for Side-Driver and Rollover-2-wheel-drive rating. The Camaro only has an 8% chance of a rollover in the event of an accident. Still to be tested are the Frontal Driver, Frontal Passenger and Side Rear Passenger ratings. From safercar.gov

Nice, we already know it's awesome from the personal crash accounts as well.

Uh I was thinking one way it could flip is if it spun around and got some lift. Not a concern just more of a scientific curiosity and devices that could help stop the lift. Like different tails.

It's 5 stars. Look in the off topic for the crash thread from this morning.

After see the real crash ratings for this car based on the results of the incident with tree. I'd say this car will probably score high overall.

~95% tree wraparound right there. I'd say GM/Holden finally bucked the old camaro trend (Mullets too.. now it's just wannabe 'gangstas' and 'rappers').

Very nice.

Unfortunately, as you all know, I can personally attest to the 5-star side crash rating... And as I've said already, I was incredibly impressed by this beast of a car
