The all-new Nissan JUKE due in Australian dealerships mid 2020 has been awarded a full five-star ANCAP safety rating in Australia, following the five-star rating awarded by Europe’s automotive safety body, Euro NCAP.
Praising the JUKE as an “all-round safety performer”, ANCAP awarded Nissan’s newest SUV a perfect score for adult and child occupant protection in the side impact test, a perfect score for its child restraint installation assessment, and high scores in each of the other testing areas.
“We’re proud of the JUKE’s strong performance, and especially proud that so much of Nissan’s advanced safety technology will be offered as standard right across the JUKE range,” said Stephen Lester, managing director of Nissan Australia.
“With Intelligent Emergency Braking that can detect cars, pedestrians and cyclists, Lane Departure Warning, Intelligent Lane Intervention, Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and so much more offered on every model, we’re happy to say that safety is not an optional extra on the all-new JUKE.”
The JUKE’s scored a full eight out of eight in the side-impact test crash test- leading Nissan’s newest SUV to a total 94 per cent in Adult Occupant Protection testing, as well as 87 per cent in Child Occupant Protection in the dynamic test (side) and restraint installation assessment.
“The safety of any vehicle begins under the surface, and it’s here the JUKE shines, with its advanced reinforced structure that’s built with ultra-high-strength steel in key areas to improve rigidity, while also allowing the force of an impact to be absorbed and dissipated before reaching the passenger safety cell. Careful use of these special metals has also allowed Nissan to improve visibility in another safety-critical area. The A-pillars between the windscreen and door frames have been made thinner, yet they still maintain their strength due to the strategic use of ultra-high strength steel.” said the Company.
Adult Occupant Protection testing – 94%
Child Occupant Protection – 87%
Vulnerable Road User Protection – 81%
Advanced Active Safety Systems – 71%
Every JUKE arrives in Australia with a host of Nissan Intelligent Mobility safety systems, including Forward Collision Warning and Intelligent Emergency Braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection, Traffic Sign Recognition, Lane Departure Warning, Intelligent Lane Intervention, Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and Intelligent Driver Alert.
The advanced safety systems are joined by automatic LED headlights with High Beam Assist, a reversing camera, rear parking sensors, and six airbags, on every JUKE model. Front parking sensors, Intelligent Cruise Control, an Intelligent Around-View® Monitor, Moving Object Detection, and a tyre-pressure-monitoring system are also available on other trim levels.
