The all-new 2013 Nissan Altima receives IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus award

The all-new 2013 Nissan Altima has been awarded the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety‘s Top Safety Pick. The IIHS as it is better known is a non-profit organization funded by auto insurers that works to reduce the number of motor vehicle crashes and injuries associated with vehicles. Its role is to carry out research and produce ratings for vehicles and some consumer products such as baby car seats.

The 2013 Nissan Altima is being recognized for an excellent performance in all five of the passenger safety tests. It was already recently awarded a five-star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, but has now also scored well on all five categories consisting of front, side, rollover, rear, and small overlap frontal.

“Driver and passenger safety are top priorities for Nissan, which is why we make features like Safety Shield technologies available,” said Bob Yakushi , Nissan’s director of product safety. “The 2013 Nissan Altima is truly Nissan’s most innovative Altima ever, and the ‘Top Safety Pick Plus’ designation by IIHS reflects the engineering and design that have gone into this car to make it stand out in the class.”
