Two new Nissan models score full ANCAP safety ratings.
The new Nissan Pathfinder and Nissan JUKE have both been awarded full five-star ANCAP safety ratings.
The results, announced today by ANCAP, will be welcomed by Nissan as both new models are expected to be popular among car buyers.
The only disappointment for Nissan was a marginal rating for pedestrian protection in the Pathfinder, while the safety authority is yet to crash test the turbo-charged and all-wheel drive variants of the JUKE.
ANCAP spokesperson Jack Haley says five-star ratings aren’t unusual for Nissan models.
“It is very encouraging to see Nissan building 5 star cars and the Pathfinder result follows other Nissan 5 star results over the last few years,
“It is becoming increasingly difficult to sell cars in Australia without a 5 star safety rating. Nissan should be congratulated on raising the Pathfinder to this higher level of safety.”
