When it comes to safety on the road, many motorists are conditioned to think that bigger is better. That isn’t strictly true, though, and the 2016 Altima at our New Rochelle area Nissan dealership is the proof in the pudding!
In fact, the 2016 Altima boasts such an impressive array of safety and security features that it was recently awarded the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS)’s highest designation as a Top Safety Pick+ vehicle. The Altima joins the 2016 Maxima and Murano in earning this prestigious title.
This year, the IIHS has tightened the requirements for this coveted designation. Eligible vehicles must earn the top rating of “good” in all five crash test segments, as well as an “advanced” or “superior” rating in the front crash prevention category.
2016 Nissan Altima Offers Outstanding Protection
Drivers who come to test drive the 2016 Nissan Altima at our New Rochelle area showroom are thrilled to hear that the sedan has earned such a notable accolade. Even more so, they’re impressed when they see the array of features that helped it to do so.
With advanced active and passive features, the 2016 Altima is constantly working to help drivers steer clear of trouble and to protect them if a collision should ever become unavoidable. Active features like Predictive Forward Collision Warning, Blind Spot Warning, Forward Emergency Braking, Intelligent Cruise Control, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert systems are particularly noteworthy.
In response to the model’s receipt of the title, Michael Bunce, vice president, Product Strategy and Planning, Nissan North America, Inc., said, “Like the new Maxima and Murano, Altima sets high standards in a very competitive class for styling, performance and value as well as safety. We at Nissan are gratified to see that another of our core models has been recognized for excellent design and vehicle safety.”
