Nissan Safety Shield® 360

When shopping for your next vehicle, one of the most important things to research is its safety features. In the Nissan Altima SV trim and above, you'll be standardly equipped with Nissan Safety Shield® 360. It's a suite of advanced safety and driver-assisting technology features that monitors your entire vehicle to keep you protected at all costs.

One of the features you'll find in Nissan Safety Shield® 360 is Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection. This feature is designed to apply the brakes to help avoid or lessen the severity of an impact.

Additionally, Nissan Safety Shield® 360 comes with Rear Automatic Braking. Backing up can be challenging. Make things easier with a second set of eyes. If an object is detected in your rear path, your Nissan Altima will automatically apply the brakes.

Nissan Safety Shield® 360 also comes with the following features:

  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert
  • Blind Spot Warning
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • High Beam Assist

Nissan Altima: Advanced Safety Technology

Aside from Nissan Safety Shield® 360, your Nissan Altima is protected with an array of advanced features that help keep you protected in the event of a collision. Standard on the Altima is Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC), which detects when you over or understeer and reduces engine power and applies brakes if needed.

The Altima's Electronic Brake force Distribution also detects when advanced braking is needed. In case of emergency, this feature will apply maximum force.

The LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren) System keeps your kids safe during your travels. LATCH lets you secure the compatible child restraints in the rear seats, which replace a traditional seat belt locking clip.

Lastly, the Nissan Altima comes with the Nissan Advanced Air Bag System, which includes dual-stage supplemental front air bags with seat belt and occupant-classification sensors. The system also features front and rear seat-mounted side-impact supplemental air bags and roof-mounted curtain side-impact supplemental air bags with rollover sensor.

The Confidence of Intelligent All-Wheel Drive

No matter the time of year, you'll have the confidence you need to tackle the roads in your Altima. This is all thanks to its available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system. With this advanced system, you'll receive the same kind of capability you can expect with an SUV. When mated to the Nissan Altima's standard 2.5-liter engine, the AWD monitors the road conditions to ensure you're driving with the optimal traction.
