To help drivers avoid crashes, Nissan will offer Safety Shield 360, a suite of six active safety technologies, as standard equipment on 11 models beginning in 2021.
“Offering these safety technologies as standard equipment on 11 of our most popular models in Canada is an important step forward,” said Andy Christensen, senior manager and lead technology expert of Intelligent Transportation System Research, Nissan Technical Center North America. “This added layer of protection can help keep young drivers safe especially as they are getting used to being on busy roads.”
Nissan currently offers Safety Shield 360 standard on Sentra, LEAF, Maxima, Qashqai and TITAN. Safety Shield 360 will also be standard on 2021 Rogue and on three additional models to be announced in the coming months. The all-new 2020 Sentra and 2021 Rogue both have some of the most standard safety features in their respective classes.
Nissan Safety Shield 360 includes: Automatic Emergency Braking; Lane Departure Warning; High Beam Assist; Blind Spot Warning; Rear Cross Traffic Alert; and Rear Automatic Braking.
