Whether you’re driving alone on your daily commute or going to dinner with your hungry family, you want a vehicle that can keep you safe. Paul Miller Nissan wants to let you know that you can count on Nissan for driving safely in Fairfield, Connecticut. Here’s why.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety recently awarded both the 2021 Nissan Altima and the 2021 Nissan Sentra with stellar safety accolades. The Altima earned the 2020 TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating, and the 2021 Sentra received the 2020 IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK award.
Advanced Headlight Technology
Both sedans earned these Nissan safety awards for the recent updates to their advanced headlight technology. The IIHS places a huge emphasis on the quality and utility of headlights when rating vehicles. According to the organization, roughly half of all fatal accidents in the U.S. take place after dark or before sunrise, whether it’s on an early morning commute or during night driving.
With standard High Beam Assist, the 2021 Altima offers increased visibility when driving in the dark. This tool is what helped earn the Altima the top IIHS safety award.
Driver Assist Features
The 2021 Sentra comes with the Safety Shield 360, which includes driver-assist features like Lane Departure Warning and Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection. The updates to the available thin projector LED headlights earned the Sentra its 2020 IIHS TSP award.
