What Does the IIHS Test For?

The IIHS tests for two unique factors of car safety: how well a vehicle can protect its passengers in the event of an accident (crashworthiness) and how well it can avoid an accident altogether (crash avoidance).

Ratings range from GOOD (the very best), to ACCEPTABLE and MARGINAL, to POOR (the very worst).

Crashworthiness Ratings:

  • Small overlap front: GOOD
  • Moderate overlap front: GOOD
  • Side: GOOD
  • Roof strength: GOOD
  • Head restraints: GOOD

Crash Avoidance & Mitigation Ratings:

  • Front crash prevention: SUPERIOR--with optional Nissan safety equipment
  • Headlights: ACCEPTABLE--with optional Nissan safety equipment

Note, the headlight safety rating is new for 2017, and tests for low-beam type, high-beam type, ability to adaptively curve, and ability to automatically adjust low-beam to high-beam in response to approaching traffic. It applies to models built after October of 2016.
