Nissan, NHTSA & IIHS Agree on Standard Automatic Emergency Braking by 2022

In the future, a good part of what makes our cars safe will come from active driver-assistive technologies. As part of a pact between the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), and most automakers selling cars in the US market, one of these technologies will become standard by 2022—specifically, automatic emergency braking.

Nissan is part of the group of automakers that has agreed to make automatic emergency braking standard on all of its vehicles by 2022, but you won’t have to wait that long to benefit from the technology. Most of the vehicles in our lineup at James Ceranti Nissan are already equipped with many advanced safety features, which includes automatic emergency braking, stability and traction control, antilock brakes, and numerous other safety technologies.

In fact, it’s likely that Nissan will make it standard across most, if not all, of its vehicles long before 2022 comes around. Other auto brands will just have to catch up.

2016 Murano Named US News & World Report’s Best 2-Row SUV for Families

2016 Nissan Murano

The 2016 Nissan Murano has been named US News & World Report’s Best 2-Row SUV for Families. This is the second time the Murano received an award from the publication this year, after being named one of its “Best Cars for the Money” back in February.

US News & World Report looked at 256 new cars, SUVs, and minivans currently on sale to determine the best vehicles in each major segment. Safety and reliability ratings, seating and cargo volume, family-friendly feature availability, and professional automotive reviews were all taken into consideration during the ranking process.

“Though the 2016 Nissan Murano’s price qualifies it as an affordable mid-size SUV, reviewers say its cabin offers a near-luxury level of refinement,” the editors wrote. “The Murano, however, isn’t just a great value. It’s also our Best 2-Row SUV for Families because it has the leading combination of interior space, available family-friendly features, and safety and reliability ratings in its class.”
