While the 2020 Maxima has taken home the Top Safety Pick+ Designation, the 2020 Nissan Altima secured the Top Safety Pick Rating – when equipped with (optional) front crash prevention and specific headlights!  Safety is definitely at the top of the list with both the 2020 Maxima and 2020 Altima, as both models come with (available) Nissan Safety Shield 360 Technologies – which include a suite of six advanced driver-assist systems:

  • Intelligent Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection
  • Blind Spot Warning
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert
  • Intelligent Lane Intervention 
  • High Beam Assist
  • Rear Intelligent Emergency Braking

Identifying only the very best vehicle choices for safety in a given year, the IIHS awards rate vehicles in 13 size categories!  Also worth mentioning is that just 64 models were given the top safety designation for 2020!  Last fall, the Maxima and the Altima were also rated top performers, in IIHS pedestrian crash prevention testing!preview-928x522 (1)
