Nissan Earns a Whole Bunch of IIHS Top Safety Ratings

Four Nissan models have received IIHS Top Safety ratings. Is this a big deal? Yes! Why? Because the IIHS (or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) is one of the strictest and prestigious safety associations in America, and getting the nod from them is like an automotive medal of honor. And Nissan racked up a whopping four.

The 2016 Nissan Rogue and the 2016 Nissan Sentra were both named IIHS Top Safety Picks, meaning that they ranked “Good” or higher in all five of the IIHS’s crashworthiness test categories.

The 2016 Nissan Maxima and the 2016 Nissan Murano each earned the highest of the IIHS Top Safety ratings: the Top Safety Pick+. To earn that coveted little plus-sign, a vehicle must not only earn those five “Good” ratings, but also score and “Advanced” or “Superior” in front crash prevention systems.

What does this mean for Nissan drivers across America? Just that they can feel really good–and really safe–every time they get behind the wheel.
