2016 Nissan Sentra Named IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus
The U.S. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has upgraded the 2016 Nissan Sentra to its highest rating of Top Safety Pick Plus when equipped with optional Forward Emergency Braking technology.
The IIHS has tightened its standards this year and in order to earn a Top Safety Pick a vehicle must obtain a “good” or better rating in all five of the crashworthiness categories and an “advanced” or “superior” rating for front crash prevention.
“Nissan is proud to have another of our core vehicles recognized by IIHS for vehicle safety,” said Michael Bunce, vice president, Product Strategy and Planning, Nissan North America, Inc. (NNA). “Nissan has the safety and security of Nissan vehicle owners and their passengers as its top priority, so we are glad to see our long-term investment in safety showing results in these latest IIHS tests.”
The Sentra joins the 2016 Altima, Maxima and Murano in earning the IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus rating.
