Nissan engineers have been hard at working making the new Maxima safer than ever before. With a combination of active and passive safety systems, this model is capable of keeping you better protected on the road. These features include Safety Shield, LATCH seating, Moving Object Detection, and forward emergency braking among others.
Safety Shield. This comprehensive suite of safety systems is made to monitor, respond, and protect. Cameras and sensors work to detect any potential dangers. Pairing with computer systems, Safety Shields can activate safety systems, keeping you and your passengers safe behind the wheel. These include technologies like the following:
Predictive Forward Collision Warning
Forward Emergency Braking
Blind Spot Warning
Rear Cross Traffic Alert
Around View Monitor
Intelligent Cruise Control
Driver Attention Alert
Moving Object Detection
Tire Pressure Monitoring
LATCH Seating. LATCH stands for Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children. Nissan models come with anchors for child safety seating, helping to prevent thousands of deaths and injuries per year. LATCH works to properly anchor seats and reduce the risk of injury in a severe accident.
Moving Object Detection. Moving Object Detection pairs with cameras to detect dangers and alert drivers. This system is great for backing out of parking spaces, passing, getting passed, and other situations when other drivers may be in your blind spot. MOD also works with Around View to give you improved visibility. If there is danger, drivers will receive an alert.
Forward Emergency Braking. This is one of the biggest breakthroughs in automotive safety, one reason over 99 percent of automakers in the US have agreed to implement this system by 2020. Forward Emergency Braking works to detect imminent danger, applying the brakes in order to reduce or prevent serious injury and damage. Forward Emergency Braking is capable of looking ahead, responding faster than the average human to help reduce accidents by up to 80 percent in some cases.
The 2017 Nissan Maxima comes available with all of these features and more. Working to keep you better protected, Nissan engineers and designers have developed one of the most advanced models on the market. There’s nothing quite like the new Maxima.
