What Are the Nissan Sentra Safety Ratings?
Vehicle safety is measured through a multitude of tests by multiple organizations. One such group is known as the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Here’s what they had to say about the Nissan Sentra.
The NHTSA awarded the Nissan Sentra with a 5-Star overall safety rating. This is the highest possible score a vehicle can receive. During testing, the NHTSA examines safety from various categories, including frontal crash safety. In this category, the Sentra received a 5-Star rating for its driver’s side barrier, overall rollover, and overall side safety, just to name a few.
The NHTSA isn’t the only one to praise the 2020 Sentra for the safety features. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), determined the Sentra worthy of the “Good” rank—IIHS’s highest grade—in all of its crashworthiness testing.
Peace of Mind with Nissan Safety Shield® 360
The majority of vehicles on the road today are equipped with their own safety features and driver assistive technologies. However, not all of them are created equal. Not all of them are included standard, either. Thankfully, Nissan Safety Shield® 360 is.
This innovative selection of standard safety systems is designed to bring an extra dose of confidence and peace of mind to every journey. Let’s take a look at some standout features:
- Rear Automatic Braking: By monitoring the area directly behind your vehicle, your Sentra can scan for stationary items out of your view. If an object is detected and you do not stop, this system can even automatically engage the brakes.
- Lane Departure Warning: Sometimes we tend to drift from our designated lane. Lane Departure Warning can detect if this is happening and will apply haptic feedback to the steering wheel to let you know you’re drifting.
- High Beam Assist: If an oncoming vehicle is spotted, High Beam Assist will automatically deactivate your Sentra model’s high beams, reactivating them again once the driver has passed.
Nissan Sentra Safety: Active & Passive Amenities
The bulk of vehicle safety can be broken down into two categories: passive and active systems.
The job for active safety systems is to prevent a potential accident or collision. Thus, active safety systems are always running whenever you step behind the wheel. Passive safety systems, on the other hand, work to minimize the damage or lessen the impact of a collision. Unlike active systems, passive ones will not turn on and jump into action until they’re needed.
Inside the Sentra, you’ll find many active and passive safety systems. These include the LATCH System (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren), driver’s and front-passenger’s supplemental knee airbags, and zone body construction with front and rear crumple zones.
