Active safety features with Nissan's Safety Shield 360 can substantially reduce the risks of harm to vehicle occupants by preventing severe accidents. Active safety systems that are standard on the Nissan Maxima include: Automatic Emergency Braking w/ Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Warning, and Blind Spot Warning.
Another vehicle feature may make a vehicle safer, even if not at the forefront of technological advances. Standard side mirror turn signals can help when you don't see a vehicle in your blind spot, by alerting them to your intention to switch lanes, which allows the other driver to avoid an accident with you.
