2015 Nissan Murano Top Safety Pick

The 2015 Nissan MURANO - 2015 IIHS Top Safety Pick+


Good Safety and Style


The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has announced that the 2015 Nissan Murano has earned a Top Safety Pick+ rating, making it THE ONLY midsize SUV to receive the designation. In order to earn this rating, a vehicle must score "good" or "acceptable" in its five crash tests, and either an "advanced" or "superior" in the front crash prevention test as seen in the image below.

Safety Features include:

The Murano scored "good" in all five test categories, with a "superior" rating in front crash protection with models equipped with the optional Forward Emergency Braking.  The 2015 Nissan Murano features a standard Nissan Advanced Air Bag System (AABS), seat belt and occupant classification sensors, Zone Body construction with front and rear crumple zones, along with the available Around View Monitor (AVM) with Moving Object Detection (MOD). This available system helps enhance driver situational awareness with visual and audible warnings if a moving object is detected when parking or backing up.

SHEET METAL IN THE KEY OF STUNNING Inspired by the future of aerospace, Murano's striking aerodynamic body looks as though it was shaped by the wind. The fluid profile begins with the V-Motion Grille and sweeps into a signature floating roofline that appears to hover above the cabin, and ends at rear side pillars that resemble a jet's tail.

Safety Features include:

Side airbags: front and rear head curtain airbags and front seat-mounted torso airbags

Rollover sensor: designed to deploy the side curtain airbags in the event of an impending rollover

Driver knee airbag: a separate airbag in the lower instrument panel designed to minimize knee injuries in frontal crashes

Antilock brakes

Electronic Stability Control

Daytime running lights
