Check out Nissan 24’s review of the 2016 Altima’s safety features to find out more.
Every 2016 Nissan Altima gets an impressive suite of standard safety features, including six airbags, anti-lock brakes, Traction and Stability control and brake assist. Whether you’re maneuvering through bumper to bumper traffic, cruising on the highway or navigating slippery roads, the Altima’s standard equipment can help you drive confidently.
The 2016 Nissan Altima is a sleek midsize sedan with a strong frame that keeps your passengers protected when the unthinkable happens. With its impeccable crash test scores and class-exclusive predictive forward collision warning system (FCW), you can have some peace of mind while behind the wheel of a Nissan Altima.
Always Planning Ahead
FCW is one of the Altima’s most innovative safety features, and uses radar to monitor the speed of the two cars ahead of you. When it senses a sudden deceleration from either vehicle, FCW sends an audio alert and visual warning so you can respond accordingly. Competitors like the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry and Hyundai Sonata don’t offer this system, which makes the 2016 Altima a class leader when it comes to safety.
Stop Collisions in Their Tracks
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety awarded the Altima a Top Safety Pick+ rating when equipped with forward emergency braking (FEB). This system monitors your speed, the distance between you and the vehicle ahead, and applies the brake when you’re getting too close. When equipped with FEB, the 2016 Altima helps you stay a step ahead of collisions.
You Always Have Backup With The Altima
The 2016 Nissan Altima’s available rearview monitor improves your visibility while backing out. When you switch into reverse, a screen in the Altima’s front console displays an image of the area behind it, with guidelines outlining your intended path. That way, you can see potential obstacles more clearly and avoid accidents while backing out.
Along with the backup camera, the 2016 Altima also offers a rear cross traffic alert system, which detects vehicles approaching from either side of you. Backing out of driveways, parallel parking and driving in reverse has never been easier with these two safety features on the Altima.
An Extra Set of Eyes
The 2016 Nissan Altima’s available blind spot warning system searches for vehicles in your blind spot. If another car is detected, a warning light appears on the Advanced Driver Assist Display® and either the driver’s or front passenger’s door.
The Altima also sends a warning chime and flashes an indicator light if you put your turn signal on while a car is in your blind spot. With blind spot warning, you can skirt potential sideswipe collisions while switching lanes.
