Performance vs. Safety

Do you think Chevy will sacrifice the perfect 5 star crash rating from the NHTSA and IIHS to make it faster? And which would you prefer?

No, I don't think so. The ATS has a 5 star rating. No reason GM can't do both.

I would say not. GM is not going to go backwards, if anything, they will move fwd.

I expect the Gen-6 Camaro to have a nose an inch or two longer than the ATS Coupe...which would only enhance its frontal protection (5.1 Stars?), and potentially aid in the offset tests.

As consumers, we should expect both.


The competition won't be making this trade off, GM shouldn't either.

Exactly. I would not really want one or the other.
