When buying a vehicle, safety should be something you factor into the equation. We value the wellbeing of our customers here at Santa Cruz Nissan, which is why we like to spread the word about our company’s dedication to creating new safety technology at every turn.
Safety Shield Technology: Nissan prides itself on taking forward strides not only in the design and performance of automobiles, but also in keeping customers safe on the open road. Part of that involves innovating technology like the Safety Shield suite of driver alert and assist systems. The tech is broken down into three sections: monitor, respond, and protect. Monitoring systems like Predictive Forward Collision Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert keep an extra eye on the road to detect potential hazard; responsive features like Traction Control or Brake Assist adapt to dangerous situations. Then, in case of a collision, the vehicle is constructed to protect the driver and passengers alike.
While the 2017 model year has not yet been put to the test by the IIHS, the 2016 model year earned “Good” ratings in every crashworthiness category. Now for 2017, it’s expected the Versa will score even higher thanks to improved safety technology.
