Quality, high-performance, stylish, and dependable are just a handful of the words used to describe the 2018 Nissan lineup but don’t forget about safety. With a plethora of active, passive, and driver-assist safety features, several Nissan models provide peace of mind every time you get behind the wheel. So which model stands out as the safest of them all? Let’s take a look.
The 2018 Nissan Altima offers a comprehensive set of safety features, including the Nissan Intelligent Mobility driver-assist system and the Nissan Advanced Air Bag System. The airbag system provides six airbags throughout the cabin that deploy on impact. Advanced automatic headlights provide a hands-off approach to darkness and inclement weather, making sure you can always see where you’re going.
Like the Altima, the 2018 Nissan Maxima gets an advanced airbag system and Nissan Intelligent Mobility. This mobility system provides offerings such as automatic emergency braking, blind-spot warning, and rear cross-traffic alert. Traction and stability control also come standard.
Nissan’s top-selling SUV provides added space and versatility without skimping on safety. The Rogue offers many of the same amenities as the Maxima and Altima, but this year, it also gets Nissan ProPilot Assist. This semi-autonomous system navigates the road, easing stress and fatigue in the process.
With tons of stellar safety specs, the Altima, Maxima, and Rogue all earned five-star safety ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Top Safety Pick nods from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Because they all have excellent features, there’s no clear-cut winner, but you can rest easy knowing you’re protected.
