Today the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) upgraded the 2016 Nissan Sentra to its highest rating of "Top Safety Pick Plus" when equipped with optional Forward Emergency Braking technology.
Since the introduction of the seventh-generation Sentra in fall 2012, Nissan's compact sedan has experienced tremendous growth in sales and market share, making it one of Nissan's fastest growing nameplates.
Following major revisions of the Nissan Maxima flagship sedan and best-selling Nissan Altima for the 2016 model year, Nissan today debuted a significantly revised 2016 Sentra at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) today awarded the 2015 Nissan Sentra a “Top Safety Pick” vehicle safety rating. The Institute’s “Top Safety Pick” award recognizes passenger vehicles that excel in protecting passengers in moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests and also achieve a “Good” or “Acceptable” rating in the small overlap frontal test. The 2015 Sentra scored “Good” in all five of the “Top Safety Pick” categories.
