2023 Nissan Altima Safety Features
One of the most important things to consider when buying a new vehicle is the included safety features. It’s these safety features that will help keep you safe on the road, protecting you, your passengers, and your vehicle. If you’re looking for a new sedan that comes with the latest safety technology innovations, you should look no further than the new 2023 Nissan Altima. Below, we’ll highlight some of the key safety features that you can get with the 2023 Nissan Altima.
Advanced Air Bag System
One of the best safety features in the 2023 Nissan Altima, and one of the most important features in any new vehicle, is the air bag system. Inside the 2023 Nissan Altima, there are dual-stage supplemental front air bags, which also have seat belt and occupant-classification sensors. This allows the Alimta to release the air bags at the right time and to adjust based on who is sitting in the seat.
There are also eight additional air bags throughout the cabin, including seat-mounted side-impact air bags and roof-mounted curtain side-impact air bags. While you hope to never need this safety system, if the time ever arrives that you do, you’ll be glad the 2023 Nissan Altima surrounded you with one of the best available air bag systems.
Automatic Emergency Braking
Automatic emergency braking scans the road in front of you, then applies the brakes if you are about to get into an accident. It monitors not only for cars in front of you in traffic but also for any pedestrians that may be crossing the street. The automatic emergency braking system inside the 2023 Nissan Altima also takes into account your speed and the distance to the object to determine how quickly to apply the brakes or whether to simply alert the driver to slow down.
Blind Spot Monitoring
The blind spot is an area outside of your vehicle that’s hard to see with your peripheral vision. With the blind spot monitoring system inside the 2023 Nissan Altima, you won’t have to worry as you’re merging lanes on the highway or making a turn while driving. This system constantly monitors your blind spot for you, then alerts you if there’s something hiding where you can’t see it.
Driver Attention Alerts
The 2023 Nissan Altima also provides several driver attention alerts, all designed to help keep you safe while driving. For example, the 2023 Nissan Altima can monitor your driving habits, such as your steering patterns, and if it believes you’re getting drowsy, it can alert you that it might be time for a break. It also detects traffic signs as you drive so that you always know what road signs are in effect.
High Beam Assist
When it’s extra dark at night, we’re often tempted to turn on the high beams so that we can see a little better. However, when you drive with your high beams, you can disturb vehicles that are coming in the opposite direction. With the high beam assist feature, the 2023 Nissan Altima automatically dims the high beams when it senses oncoming traffic. This allows you to leave the high beams on, giving yourself better vision without disturbing other motorists on the road.
Intelligent Around View Monitor
The intelligent around view monitor inside the 2023 Nissan Altima gives you a composite, 360-degree view of your car from above. This is incredibly helpful, whether you’re attempting to navigate into a tight parking space or you just want to ensure there’s nothing behind you before going in reverse. With this system, you can also select split-screen closeups of the front or rear of the vehicle so that you can easily slide into that parking space.
Lane Departure Warning
The lane departure warning alerts drivers when it detects that they are drifting. If you’re sliding over into another lane and you’re not actively trying to change lanes, then the vehicle will give you an alert. We can all become distracted while we’re driving and the lane departure warning can help protect you in those rare moments when you start to drift into another lane accidentally.
The ProPILOT Assist feature helps you with your highway driving. All you need to do is push a button and the system engages, helping you to navigate the highway more safely. For example, it can detect the vehicles in front of you, then adjust your speed to ensure you remain a safe distance away without having to apply the brakes or hit the gas pedal. The ProPILOT Assist can also help keep you centered in your lane, whether you’re driving straight down the highway or around a gentle curve.
Rear Automatic Braking
It’s all too common for our rear bumpers to experience some damage over the course of ownership. To help protect your rear bumper, the 2023 Nissan Altima has rear automatic braking. This safety feature monitors the rear of your vehicle for any stationary objects, then applies the brakes if you are about to hit it. This can help you either avoid a collision entirely or at least lower the severity of the impact.
Rear Cross Traffic Alert
Finally, there’s a rear cross traffic alert. The best time to use this feature is when you’re going in reverse and can’t necessarily see if there is oncoming traffic. For example, you might be backing out of your spot in a crowded parking lot. The rear cross traffic alert system monitors the surrounding area and alerts you if something is approaching from either side as you go in reverse.
