Check out Nissan 24’s review of the 2019 Nissan Altima safety rating and features to find out more.
Stop Collisions in Their Tracks
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety awarded the Altima the 2017 TOP SAFETY PICK+ and the 2018 TOP SAFETY PICK accolades due to its durability and reliability.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the Altima a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating for its exceptional performance during their round of crash tests.
Aside from its superior structural integrity and inherently safe design, these exceptional scores are due in part to the wide range of standard safety technology, such as Automatic Emergency Braking. Although the 2019 Altima hasn’t been tested yet, it adds even more safety technology to the mix, such as the ProPilot Assist, a semi-autonomous driving system that works to keep you in the appropriate lane to reduce any risk of a collision.
The 2019 Altima provides an impressive suite of standard safety features, including:
- Intelligent Forward Collision Warning
- Automatic Emergency Braking
- RearView Monitor
- Vehicle Dynamic Control with Traction Control System
- Intelligent Trace Control
- Hill Start Assist
- Intelligent Driver Alertness
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.
Always Planning Ahead
With Intelligent Forward Collision Warning, your awareness of the cars ahead of you will be further elevated. Using sensors, this system monitors the two cars ahead of you as well as the Altima’s speed and distance. If it detects sudden deceleration from the cars ahead of you, it warns you to slow down.
To help keep you in the center of your lane, there’s also Intelligent Lane Intervention. By keeping track of the position of your Nissan Altima, it’ll sense if it’s straying out of the marked lane and can even gently guide you back.
You Always Have Backup with the Altima
The Nissan Altima’s RearView Monitor improves your visibility while backing out. When you switch into reverse, a screen in the Altima’s console displays an image of the area behind it along with guidelines outlining your intended path. With this feature, you can see potential obstacles more clearly and spot nearby vehicles as you’re backing out.
Along with this useful camera, the Altima also provides Rear Cross Traffic Alert, a system that further helps you safely reverse from a tight parking spot. By monitoring the rear of the Altima, it’ll alert you to any cars creeping up from you on either side.
An Extra Set of Eyes
You’ll be further protected due to Blind Spot Warning, a system that keeps an extra set of eyes on your blind spot area. If it senses a vehicle approaching you in your blind spot, it’ll alert you to its presence, ensuring you safely switch lines.
This cutting-edge system also sounds 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 avoid potential collisions while switching lanes.
