EuroNCAP scores the all-new Nissan X-Trail a maximum five-star safety rating
Launched across Europe earlier this year, the new X-Trail showcases Nissan’s innovation in the field of safety, with a variety of advanced systems that provide exceptional protection for occupants and pedestrians.
Helping towards the rating, during front impact tests the passenger compartment of the new X-Trail remained stable, with dummy readings indicating good protection for the knees and femurs of the driver and passenger. The driver dummy scored maximum points in the side barrier impact tests, with good protection of all body regions. Even in the more severe side pole test, protection of all body regions was good.
Completing the report, the new X-Trail scored maximum points for the protection its bumper offered to pedestrians’ legs, with good results recorded at all test locations.
EuroNCAP’s findings illustrate why Nissan is committed to making its cars as safe as possible for passengers and pedestrians. The new X-Trail features some of the most advanced safety systems in its sector – networked together to form the brand’s acclaimed Safety Shield suite of technologies.
The safety technologies fitted to the new X-Trail include:
- Forward Emergency Braking
- Driver Attention Alert
- Traffic Sign Recognition
- Lane Departure Warning
- Moving Object Detection
- Blind Spot Warning
- High Beam Assist
Safety Shield has not only helped the latest Nissan models achieve maximum scores with EuroNCAP – its potential to avoid and reduce the severity of accidents has also been recognised by the press. Leading motoring publication recently awarded Nissan Safety Shield with its prestigious ‘Safety Award’ as part of its annual Car of the Year award.
