The need to protect your family is something that every parent can understand. When it comes to choosing your family’s vehicle, while comfort and cargo space are certainly factors to consider, other factors that top the list include:
- Safety features
- Safety ratings
- And the ability to trust that your young children can safely and securely travel in an infant, convertible or booster car seat within the vehicle.
Nissan provides several options that are among the top overall safety picks of some of the leading authorities in the industry.
When considering the general safety of a car, factors to consider are features that can help prevent an accident, such as anti-lock brakes, stability control, and overall handling, and features that will help those inside the vehicle survive an accident.
With crash test ratings between four and five stars in categories that include side impact and rollover, areas of the vehicle most likely to affect small children in car seats, the Nissan Altima, Nissan Rogue and Nissan Murano should all be high on the list of vehicles to consider when considering how safely the children in car seats will travel.
All three of these vehicles have features or options for traction control, stability control, and anti-lock brakes, an assortment of front and side airbags, and have earned either four or five stars as an overall safety rating and in crash impact tests.
Another factor to consider in determining how safe a child will be when traveling in a car seat is whether the car seat can be easily installed properly.
A child car seat can only fully protect the child if it is installed and secured correctly and if the child can easily be secured within the seat properly. The Nissan Altima, Nissan Rogue and Nissan Murano have all been found to be among the most user-friendly vehicles for installing and securing infant and convertible car seats.
These vehicles also provide easy access for adults when securing the child in his or her car seat. Regardless of whether your vehicle preference leads to the family sedan, crossover, or full SUV, Nissan can provide a vehicle to meet your family’s needs safely and comfortably.
