2015 Nissan Murano Awarded with Top Safety Pick Plus Rating from IIHS
The all-new 2015 Nissan Murano was recently awarded with the IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus vehicle safety rating – the highest possible ranking. The completely redesigned Murano scored “Good” in all five categories and received a “Superior” rating for front crash prevention for models equipped with Forward Emergency Braking.
In order to earn the Top Safety Pick designation, a vehicle must achieve a “Good” or “Acceptable” rating in the newer small overlap frontal test, as well as performing well in moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests. For the Top Safety Pick Plus rating, a vehicle must also earn an “Advanced” or “Superior” rating for front crash prevention.
The 2016 Murano is top of the class when it comes to technology, styling, refinement, luxury and quality, and now it sets the pace for safety as well. Standard safety features like the Nissan Advanced Air Bag System, Zone Body construction, Vehicle Dynamic Control and traction control all help in making the new Murano one of the safest vehicles in its class.
Nissan’s Around View Monitor with Moving Object Detection is also available, giving a bird’s eye 360 degree view to help with parking. The system also gives alerts when moving objects are detected around the vehicle, or when objects crossing in the front or rear of the vehicle are detected by the system when driving forward or in reverse.
Other advanced Nissan “Safety Shield” technologies are also available, including Intelligent Cruise Control, Blind Spot Warning, Forward Emergency Braking, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Predictive Forward Collision Warning. Certain 2015 Nissan Murano models also feature a Driver Attention Alert system which alerts the driver when they are drowsy or inattentive.
