Dummy readings showed that both passenger/s and driver survive the impacts
The new 2014 Nissan X-Trail was recently awarded the maximum Five-Star safety rating from EuroNCAP, making it one of the safest crossover SUVs in the market.
On front impact tests, the passenger compartment remained solid and the dummy readings showed that the knees and legs of the passengers and driver were kept intact. Side impact tests also scored high as the protective shells did their job in restraining and minimizing the risk of head and overall body injury from the vehicle's interior. Child protection also scored well during testing as dummy readings displayed maximum points in safeguarding 18-month old infants. Wrapping up the test, the X-Trail also marked high points for the protection of its bumper to pedestrians' legs in an event of an accident.
Along with its rigid and safe body shell, X-Trail will also be fitted with safety tech such as Forward Emergency Braking, Driver Attention Alert, Traffic Sign Recognition (Europe only), Lane Departure Warning, Moving Object Detection, Blind Spot Warning and High Beam Assist.
The 2014 Nissan X-Trail was recently launched by Nissan Philippines, Inc. at the 2014 Philippine International Motor Show.
