2012 Chevrolet Camaro is the first car to completely ace NHTSA’s new safety test

We’re not sure why General Motors isn’t making a big deal about this – but the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro Coupe has become the first vehicle to earn a perfect score in the recently revised crash testing by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s New Car Assessment Program.

The 2012 Camaro receives a 5-star overall rating with a 5-star frontal crash, 5-star side crash and a 5-star rating in a rollover crash.

The new NHTSA rating came after too many cars were earning high-scores in the older style of testing.

The Honda Accord and the Kia Optima are the only two other cars that come closest to the Camaro’s performance in the tests.
