Nissan Safety Shield 360®

When searching for a new Nissan in Orlando FL, one of the main factors to consider when choosing which model is right for you is SAFETY.

The automobile industry has come a long way in making new cars safer than ever for drivers and passengers alike, and Nissan is leading the way in revolutionary passive and active safety technologies on all new models. All 2022 Nissans come standard equipped with Nissan Safety Shield® 360 - a suite of six Nissan Intelligent Mobility features that monitor your surroundings and actively keep you safer with Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Rear Automatic Braking, Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Departure Warning, and High Beam Assist.

Four Nissan Models Awarded IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+

For the second year in a row, the 2022 Nissan Rogue, Murano, Maxima and Altima have earned IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+ honors. Additionally, the 2022 Nissan Sentra received the Institute's 2022 TOP SAFETY PICK award when it is equipped with optional upgraded headlights. Both awards recognize vehicles that provide state-of-the-art occupant protection along with technology to avoid or mitigate a crash.

IIHS Top Safety Pick Awards

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) is an independent, nonprofit scientific and educational organization dedicated to reducing deaths, injuries and property damage from motor vehicle crashes through research and evaluation and through education of consumers, policymakers and safety professionals.

Since 2006, the IIHS annually puts new vehicles through a series of 6 crash tests - driver-side small overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, original side, roof strength and head restraint evaluations - to determine how they perform in specific types of collisions. The top performing vehicles are given IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK designation. Since 2013, the TOP SAFETY PICK+ Award was developed to recognize vehicles that come standard equipped with headlights that meet IIHS criteria.

In addition, IIHS rates each model's vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian front crash prevention system and awards only those that achieve advanced or superior ratings.
