Euro NCAP has awarded a five-star rating to the all-new Nissan Qashqai, thanks to a number of new and innovative safety features that helped it pass all tests. On front impact tests, the Qashqai’s passenger compartment remained stable, with dummy readings indicating good protection for both the knees and femurs of both the driver and passenger.

The driver dummy also got maximum scores, with good protection of all body regions. The Qashqai also scored maximum points in the side barrier test, with all body parts well protected. The new Qashqai also aced the Child Occupant tests.

According to readings from the child dummies used in the dynamic tests, the vehicle got maximum scores for its protection of an 18-month old infant.

The Qashqai's front bumper also got maximum scores for the protection provided to pedestrians' legs. Helping the Qashqai achieve a five-star Euro NCAP rating was its highly advanced network of safety features, packaged as Nissan Safety Shield.

The package combines the vehicle’s electronic systems to offer the driver and occupants high levels of passive protection.

The Safety Shield technologies for the Qashqai include Forward Emergency Braking, Driver Attention Alert, Lane Departure Warning, High Beam Assist and Traffic Sign Recognition. The Nissan Safety Shield also boasts of Blind Spot Warning and Moving Object Detection –made possible and accessible by the carmaker’s Around View Monitor technology.

Premium technology and second-generation crossover design as well as improved dynamics all merge to form the new Nissan Qashqai. Nissan built on the core values and strengths of the first-generation Qashqai to develop a new model that merges style, technology and excitement.
