When you’re searching for the perfect car, you want to find one that protects the most important thing in your life, your family. At Nissan, we have developed and offer a variety of intelligent innovative technologies that help protect for you and your family. Some features can even help you avoid trouble. As part of the Nissan Safety Shield Philosophy, Nissan has engineered features that monitor, respond, and protect to help keep you and your passengers safe. This article will help determine what specs and models fit your family’s needs.
Monitor: Our Nissan Intelligent Safety Shield Technologies are designed to help monitor tire pressure, emergency breaking and blind spots.
- Nissan Intelligent Forward Collision watches two cars ahead and can warn you to slow down, which allows you to react faster before you can even see what’s stopping traffic. Comes standard on: 2018 Nissan Maxima, 2018 Nissan Armada
- Automatic Emergency Braking (previously known as Forward Emergency Braking) can provide audible and visual alerts and apply braking to help you avoid or mitigate a frontal collision with a vehicle ahead. When equipped with the additional Pedestrian Detection functionality, it can help to avoid or mitigate a collision if it detects a pedestrian in front of your vehicle. Comes standard on: 2018 Nissan Sentra, 2018 Nissan Altima, 2018 LEAF, 2018 Nissan Maxima, 2018 Nissan Rogue/Rogue Sport, 2018 Nissan Pathfinder, 2018 Nissan Murano, and select 2018 Nissan Armada models.
- Blind Spot Warning (BSW) monitors if another vehicle is detected in your blind spot area and if so, an indicator appears in the driver’s or front passenger’s door and on the Advanced Drive-Assist Display. Put your turn signal on, and the indicator flashes with a warning chime to alert you. Comes standard on: 2018 Nissan Sentra, 2018 Nissan Altima, 2018 Nissan Maxima, 2018 Nissan Kicks, 2018 Nissan Rogue/ Rogue Sport, 2018 Nissan Murano, 2018 Nissan Pathfinder, and 2018 Nissan Armada.
- Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) watches the area around the rear of the vehicle and can warn you about approaching vehicles you might not see when backing out of a parking space. Comes standard on: 2018 Nissan Sentra, 2018 Nissan Altima, 2018 Nissan Maxima, 2018 Nissan Kicks, 2018 Nissan Rogue/ Rogue Sport, 2018 Nissan Murano, and 2018 Nissan Pathfinder.
- Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC) helps maintain an adjustable set distance between you and the car in front of you. As traffic slows down or speeds up, ICC can respond accordingly. Comes standard on: 2018 Nissan Sentra, 2018 Nissan Altima, 2018 Nissan Maxima, 2018 Nissan Rogue/ Rogue Sport, 2018 Nissan Murano, 2018 Nissan Pathfinder, and 2018 Nissan Armada.
- Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) monitors tires for low inflation pressure, which can shorten tire life and reduce the load-carrying capabilities of the vehicle. Using an icon on the dash, the system lets you know when tire pressure is low. As you fill your tires, the Easy-Fill Tire Alert flashes the car’s lights and sounds a friendly beep of the horn when they have enough air. Comes standard on all Nissan models.
- Nissan Intelligent Back-Up Intervention helps to detect crossing and approaching vehicles and large object behind you, letting you know with visual and audio alerts. It can even go further and automatically engage the brakes to help avoid a collision. Comes standard on: 2018 Nissan Armada
Intelligent Rear-View Mirror allows you to see right past your passengers’ faces if you have a full car. This feature turns your rear-view mirror into a camera screen, giving you a vivid, wide angle view, day or night. Available on all models but comes standard on: 2018 Versa Sedan, 2018 Versa Note, 2018 Sentra, 2018 Altima, 2018 Maxima, 2018 Leaf, 2018 Armada, 2018 Pathfinder, and 2018 Nissan Rogue/ Rogue Sport.
Intelligent Around View® Monitor uses four cameras to give you a virtual composite 360º bird’s-eye view of your vehicle, with selectable split-screen close-ups of the front, rear, and curbside views. And since all obstacles aren’t stationary, the Moving Object Detection system can warn you about moving objects detected in your vicinity. Comes standard on: 2018 Versa Note, 2018 Nissan Leaf, 2018 Nissan Maxima, 2018 Nissan Rogue/ Rogue Sport, 2018 Nissan Kicks, 2018 Nissan Murano, 2018 Nissan Pathfinder, and 2018 Nissan Armada.
Respond: You can’t always control the road and when an unexpected obstacle causes you to brake hard or maneuver fast, these technologies may assist you and comes standard on all Nissan models.
- Vehicle dynamic control (VDC) helps you maintain your steered path.
- Traction control system (TCS) helps reduce wheelspin in low-traction situations.
- Anti-lock Braking system (ABS) pumps the brakes faster than you could in sudden braking situations to help prevent wheel lockup, allowing you to steer around obstacles that suddenly appear.
- Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD) detects extra weight in the back from passengers or cargo and adjusts rear break force accordingly and sends extra force to the rear brakes to compensate for additional rear passengers or cargo.
- Brake Assist (BA) helps apply maximum braking force if it detects hard braking and senses you are in an emergency situation.
- Intelligent Auto Headlights read and react to light conditions outside, automatically turning your lights on and off when needed. To help you out in poor conditions, they also react automatically to the windshield wipers, turning on after four swipes.
- Nissan Advanced Air Bag System features front air bags with seat belt and occupant-classification sensors to help protect you and your loved ones in case of a collision.
- Nissan Latch System lets you secure LATCH-compatible child restraints in the back seat without having to use seat belts or a locking clip. Check out more about the Snug Kids Child Safety here.
Protect: When a collision is unavoidable, the Nissan Zone Body construction helps protect you and your family from impact. These features come standard on all Nissan Models.
