If you’re looking for a great car for your teen driver in Columbus, Mississippi, the IIHS has named several Nissan vehicles to its list of the safest cars on the market. The 2021 Altima sedan and the 2021 Murano crossover were named to the IIHS best new cars list, and previous model years of the Murano and Rogue crossovers made the used cars list.
Only vehicles with IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+ ratings and standard emergency braking technology were included on the 2021 model year list. The IIHS used data from Consumer Reports to judge vehicles based on member surveys, vehicle tests, and more.
Vehicles that made the new car list, like the 2021 Nissan Murano and Nissan Altima, had to meet a range of criteria to be included. For instance, if a vehicle had a history of high medical insurance claims, it would be excluded from the list. This helps ensure that the vehicles on the list have great collision mitigation and protect your teen from serious injury if they’re in an accident.
The IIHS released two used car lists, a “Best Choice” list and a “Good Choice” one. The Rogue and Murano were both named a Best Choice, thanks to their impressive safety scores over the last few model years. According to the IIHS, any Murano from 2015 or later is a Best Choice for teens, and five out of the last seven model years are a great choice for the Rogue.
