MONITOR

Smart technologies are designed to help monitor conditions, from a system that helps ensure you’re travelling on properly inflated tires, to an available system that monitors your driving, and alerts you that you may need a break.

Nissan Altima equipped with Safety Shield features
Predictive Forward Collision Warning | Nissan Safety Shield

Predictive Forward Collision Warning (PFCW) *

In traffic, it only takes a moment to get caught off guard in a potentially dangerous situation. How about a little help? With this technology, a radar sensor on the front of your Nissan constantly monitors not just one vehicle ahead in your lane, but two. When the system detects sudden deceleration two vehicles ahead, it gives you an audible warning and a visual signal on the instrument panel. So you get a heads up, even if you can’t see what’s slowing you down.

Available on: 2016 Rogue®, 2016 Altima®, 2016 Maxima®, 2016 Murano®

Forward Emergency Braking  | Nissan Safety Shield

Forward Emergency Braking (FEB) *

Using radar technology to keep an eye on your speed and proximity to the vehicle ahead of you, Forward Emergency Braking gives you audible and visual display warnings to help you reduce your speed, if necessary. It can also apply braking if you fail to respond to help you avoid a collision. If a collision is unavoidable, this feature will engage the brakes to help reduce speed of impact and reduce the severity of a collision.

Available on: 2016 Sentra®, 2016 Altima®, 2016 Maxima®, 2016 Murano®

Blind Spot Warning  | Nissan Safety Shield

Blind Spot Warning (BSW) *

If another vehicle is detected in the blind spot area, an indicator appears in the driver’s or front passenger’s door pillar and on the Advanced Drive-Assist® Display. Put your turn signal on, and the indicator flashes with a warning chime to alert you.

Available on: 2016 Rogue®, 2016 Altima®, 2016 Maxima®, 2016 Sentra®, 2016 Pathfinder®, 2016 Murano®

Rear Cross Traffic Alert  | Nissan Safety Shield

Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) *

When you’re backing out of a parking space, this available feature can detect and warn you about detected vehicles you might not see behind you approaching from either side. So backing up feels easier than ever.

Available on: 2016 Altima®, 2016 Maxima®, 2016 Sentra®, 2016 Pathfinder®, 2016 Murano®

RearView Monitor back up camera | Nissan Safety Shield

RearView Monitor (RM) *

Parallel parking made easy. Giving you a view of what’s directly behind you, the RearView Monitor makes backing up an easier task. Green, yellow, and red indicators also help you gauge how close you are to objects – a real help in tight spaces.

Available on: 2016 Altima®

Around View Monitor camera system | Nissan Safety Shield

Around View® Monitor (AVM) *

Around View® Monitor uses four cameras to give you a virtual composite 360º bird's-eye view of your vehicle, with selectable split-screen close-ups of the front, rear, and curbside views. And since all obstacles aren't stationary, the available Moving Object Detection system can warn you about moving objects detected in your vicinity.

Available on: 2016 Maxima®, 2016 Murano®, 2016 Pathfinder®

Intelligent adaptive Cruise Control | Nissan Safety Shield

Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC) *

Unlike traditional systems that only maintain a set speed, Intelligent Cruise Control also helps keep an adjustable set distance between you and the car in front. As traffic slows down or speeds up, ICC responds accordingly.

Available on: 2016 Sentra®

Driver Attention Alert | Nissan Safety Shield

Driver Attention Alert (DAA) *

An American Automobile Association study estimates that an average of 328,000 automobile accidents can be attributed to fatigued driving every year on American roads *. That’s why we developed the Driver Attention Alert system, or DAA. This forward-thinking technology works by monitoring your steering patterns. Should the system detect any unusual steering activity, it will alert you audibly with a chime, and visually by lighting a coffee cup icon on your display, letting you know it may be time for a break.

Available on: 2016 Maxima®, 2016 Murano®

Moving Object Detection | Nissan Safety Shield

Moving Object Detection (MOD) *

Moving Object Detection uses the cameras of the Around View® Monitor which gives you visual and audible alerts if the system detects moving objects near the vehicle.

Available on: 2016 Maxima®, 2016 Murano®

Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) | Nissan Safety Shield

Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) *

TPMS monitors tires for low inflation pressure, which can shorten tire life and reduce the load-carrying capabilities of the vehicle. Using an icon on the dash, the system lets you know when tire pressure is low. As you fill your tires, the available Easy-Fill Tire Alert flashes the car’s lights and sounds a friendly beep of the horn when they have enough air.

Available on: 2016 Altima®, 2016 Sentra®, 2016 Maxima®

Parking Sonars | Nissan Safety Shield

Parking Sonars

The Front and Rear Sonar System* beeps when it detects objects near the bumper while backing up, and increases in frequency the closer you get to help you maneuver in tight spaces.

Available on: 2016 Altima®, 2016 Sentra®, 2016 Maxima®, 2016 Rogue®, 2016 Pathfinder®, 2016 Murano®

Nissan Advanced Air Bag System *

This system includes dual-stage supplemental front air bags with seat belt sensors and an occupant-classification sensor. The inflation rate of these dual-stage air bags adjusts depending on crash severity and seat belt usage

Front Seat-Mounted Side-Impact Supplemental Air Bag *

These air bags are built into the front seats backs, so they move with the occupants.

Roof-Mounted Curtain Side-Impact Supplemental Air Bag *

Roof-mounted curtain side-impact supplemental air bags help provide head protection for both rows of outboard occupants.

Active Head Restraints

Active Head Restraints help reduce the chances of whiplash injuries to front-seat occupants by moving up and forward during certain rear-end collisions.

Standard on all Nissan models.

LATCH System (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children)

LATCH is another way we’re working to keep children safe. The system lets you secure LATCH-compatible child restraints without having to use seat belts or a locking clip.

SNUG Kids

Nissan safety engineers have dedicated thousands of hours to evaluating hundreds of child restraints in Nissans. The result: An industry first, The Snug Kids® Child Safety Seat Fit Guide. This guide lists child seats that fit the rear seats of Nissan vehicles, as well as offers invaluable tips on correct installation. Look for the latest Fit Guide at NissanUSA.com/SnugKids.

Standard on all Nissan models.
