We all want to drive safe cars and luckily there are organizations that test vehicles to see how safe they really are. One of these is the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Each year it puts new cars through rigorous crash tests to determine their crashworthiness and the highest recognition it gives out is the Top Safety Pick+.

Recently, Nissan’s Top Safety Pick+ cars increased their total number of vehicles by one with the addition of the 2016 Altima. The Altima joins the 2016 Maxima and Murano that have also earned this designation.

IIHS gave the Altima its top “good” score in all five crash test and a “superior” rating for front crash prevention for models equipped with the available Forward Emergency Braking technology.

“Nissan is very proud to have our best-selling vehicle recognized by IIHS for excellence in vehicle safety,” said Michael Bunce, vice president, Product Strategy and Planning, Nissan North America, Inc. (NNA), in a statement. Furthermore he says, “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.”

The Forward Emergency Braking helps drivers stay safer by keeping an eye on their speed, how close drivers are to the cars around them, and can apply the brakes if the driver does not respond when needed.

In addition to this great technology, the Altima also offers Predictive Forward Collision Warning, Blind Spot Warning, Intelligent Cruise Control, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.  Stop by 171 Nissan today to find out more about the award-winning 2016 Nissan Altima!
