2017 Nissan Armada Active Safety Features

The Nissan Armada is equipped with a four-wheel anti-lock braking system that has numerous features designed to aid you in preventing a collision.

The body of this SUV features front and rear crumple zones and high-strength side-door guard beams that provide security of passengers.
