Nissan is working to help you feel more confident and protected behind the wheel. It’s been proven that advanced driver assistance systems can help reduce crashes, so the brand has decided that it will offer its innovative Nissan Safety Shield® 360 suite as standard equipment starting in 2021.
The announcement of this decision was made in conjunction with National Teen Driver Safety Week, which encourages parents to have important conversations with their teen drivers about how to stay safe behind the wheel.
“Offering these safety technologies as standard equipment on 11 of our most popular models in Canada is an important step forward,” said Andy Christensen, senior manager and lead technology expert for Intelligent Transportation System Research at Nissan Technical Center North America. “This added layer of protection can help keep young drivers safe, especially as they are getting used to being on busy roads.”
Every Nissan Safety Shield® 360 suite includes six advanced driver-assistance features:
- Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection
- Lane Departure Warning
- High Beam Assist
- Blind Spot Warning
- Rear Cross Traffic Alert
- Rear Automatic Braking
This suite of safety features now comes standard on the Nissan Sentra, LEAF, Maxima, Qashqai, and TITAN. It will also come standard on the 2021 Rogue and three other models, which will be announced in the coming months.
