Nissan Altima Safety Rating
What’s the Safety Rating of the Nissan Altima?
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) performs a wide array of vehicle crash tests every year to help reduce the losses from motor vehicle crashes. The Nissan Altima received the highest rating of “Good” in every test of its crashworthiness.
The standard safety system onboard the new Altima also received the highest rating of “Superior” for its vehicle-to-vehicle crash prevention. This all led to IIHS naming this sedan a TOP SAFETY PICK+.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs similar crash tests. When put through their program, the Altima came out with a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating—the highest rating possible.
Innovative Altima Safety Features
When the IIHS called the safety system of the Nissan Altima “Superior,” they meant it. This sedan is equipped with Nissan Safety Shield® 360. This advanced suite comes with the following standard features:
- Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection
- Lane Departure Warning
- High Beam Assist
- Intelligent Forward Collision Warning
Blind Spot Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert are available safety features that will keep an eye on those hard-to-see places. Whether you’re cruising down the highway or inching out of a tight parking spot, they’ll alert you if a vehicle is approaching your blind spot, so you can make your move when the coast is clear.
Available ProPILOT Assist is a unique feature that will help ease your mind during the commute or on your next long road trip. This state-of-the-art cruise control system will keep you moving at a set speed while maintaining a safe distance between you and the vehicle ahead. It can even help keep you centered in the lane with gentle steering assistance.
Altima Safety in a Crowded Parking Lot
The safety rating of the Nissan Altima extends into the parking lot. It comes standard with a RearView Monitor, which will give you a glimpse at what is behind you when in reverse.
If you opt for the available Intelligent Around View® Monitor, you’ll get the whole picture. It provides a virtual composite bird’s-eye view of your Altima, so you can shimmy into even the tightest spaces.
There’s also Rear Automatic Braking. This available technology will alert you if you get too close to a potential obstacle. If you’re unable to react in time, it’ll automatically engage the brakes.
