Online PR News – 01-January-2013 – Syosset, NY – The 2013 Nissan Altima has made quite an impression in the few short months that it has been on the market. The all-new sedan has earned yet another safety award to add to its already impressive list of accolades. A few months ago, the 2013 Altima earned a five-star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s New Car Assessment Program. In addition, the 2013 Altima has just been named a ‘Top Safety Pick Plus’ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The ‘Top Safety Pick Plus’ is a new award introduced for 2013 models that includes the ‘Top Safety Pick’ tests, as well as a newly added small overlap frontal test. The 2013 Altima scored well in each test. This stylish and safe sedan is available now at Legend Nissan.
“Driver and passenger safety are top priorities for Nissan, which is why we make features like Safety Shield technologies available,” said Bob Yakushi, Nissan’s director of product safety. “The 2013 Altima is truly Nissan’s most innovative Altima ever, and the ‘Top Safety Pick Plus’ designation by IIHS reflects the engineering and design that have gone into this car to make it stand out in the class.”
