Nissan Earns Top Safety Ratings for 3 Models

By Emily Eppley | December 22nd, 2016

 

The 2017 models for the Nissan Altima, Maxima, and Rogue all scored high and achieved Top Safety Pick Plus (TSP+) from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The TSP+ is the highest safety designation and means each model scored at least a “good” in five crashworthiness tests, an “advanced” or “superior” rating for front crash prevention and an “acceptable” or “good” headlight rating.

“Nissan is proud to have many of our North American-built vehicles recognized by IIHS for vehicle safety,” said Michael Bunce, vice president, Product Strategy and Planning, Nissan North America, Inc. (NNA). “As a full-line manufacturer, Nissan places the safety and security of Nissan vehicle owners and their passengers as its top priority. Considering that 85-percent of the vehicles we sell in the U.S. are assembled in North America, we are gratified to see the company’s long-term investment in safety yielding results in these key vehicles receiving high marks from IIHS.”

All of Nissan’s top rated vehicles have a long list of standard safety features to set them apart. Most notable are the Nissan Advanced Air Bag System (AABS) which includes dual-stage supplemental front air bags with seat belt sensors and an occupant classification sensor, front seat-mounted side impact supplemental air bags, and roof-mounted curtain supplemental side-impact air bags for front- and rear-seat outboard occupant head protection.
