The Altima, Maxima, and Rogue Earn Top Safety + Pick Ratings

January 31st, 2017 by

The 2017 Nissan Rogue, Maxima, and Altima, all earned the best possible safety rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety: the Top Safety Pick+. These three models passed the IIHS testing with flying colors, and they offer the advanced safety features necessary to earn the top ranking from the IIHS. You can find all three of these Nissan models in stock at Commonwealth Nissan.

Nissan Wins Safety Ratings

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety is one of the most respected independent automotive safety rating organizations. To achieve the coveted Top Safety Pick+ rating, vehicles must score the best possible Good rating in all crashworthiness tests, and they must earn at least an Acceptable or Superior rating in the Front Crash Prevention category. New for the 2017 model year, the IIHS is also rating vehicles on their headlights, and a vehicle must at least achieve an Acceptable rating in the headlights category to earn the top ranking.

All three of these Nissan vehicles succeeded at meeting the requirements for the Top Safety Pick+ rating:

  • 2017 Nissan Altima: the Altima earned Good scores in all crashworthiness tests, a Superior score in the Front Crash Prevention category, and an Acceptable rating in the Headlights category.
  • 2017 Nissan Maxima: The Maxima also received a Good score in all crashworthiness tests, a Superior score in Front Crash Prevention, and an Acceptable rating in Headlights tests.
  • 2017 Nissan Rogue: The Rogue also received a Good score in all crashworthiness tests, a Superior score in Front Crash Prevention, and an Acceptable rating in Headlights tests.

All vehicles require the optional Forward Emergency Braking system to achieve the Superior Crash Prevention rating. All three met the forward collision warning criteria set out by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration by avoiding a collision from 12 mph using the automatic collision prevention system.
