Nissan Micra awarded 5-stars for safety 0

Nissan-Micra-awarded-5stars-for-safetyThe UK edition of the new Nissan Micra has been awarded 5-stars for safety by the Euro NCAP. Principally responsible for the high score is the intelligent driving tech that comes fitted as standard.

The Micra was tested under Euro NCAP’s newest set of rules, the complete range available in the UK attained the highest possible score due to the comprehensive safety features fitted to all editions.

All Micras are fitted with Intelligent Emergency Braking (IEB), which detects braking or slowing vehicles ahead and automatically applies the brakes. Depending on the respective speeds involved, the severity of collisions can be reduced or avoided completely.

Pedestrian Recognition technology – which is related to the IEB tech – also comes as standard on all models; intelligent Lane Intervention (ILI) also features for the first time on the segment.

ILI works by vibrating the vehicle’s steering wheel, should it stray across the line in the centre of the road. The brakes are automatically applied, individually depending in which direction the car has strayed, the car is subsequently moved back to the correct alignment.

All Micras come with six airbags, seatbelt warnings plus a seatbelt height adjustment for the front seats.

The Isofix car child seat fitting is compatible with the new Micra, including in the front passenger seat for the best possible child protection.

Extra safety features on every Micra include the Electronic Stabilitspeed Program, anti-lock brakes and Hill Start Assist. A speed limiter, automatic headlight sensor, automatic hazard lights and a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System are also fitted.
