Nissan Altima Safety Features
Keeping your vehicle on track is the Vehicle Dynamics Control. This feature detects wheel slip and actively provides brake pressure to tires with low traction while cutting back on engine speed to ensure that your vehicle remains on track. In terms of passenger protection, this vehicle features front, side-impact, and side-curtain airbags. The front airbags are advanced, meaning that they will adjust their inflation rate to correspond with the force of impact.
This vehicle also features a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), which notifies you when one or more of your tires is underinflated and requires air. This system, in the Nissan Altima, not only informs you of the status of each individual tire, but it also features the easy-fill alert, which sends an audible chime when your tire reaches its recommended PSI.
