Two tests of the Altima were conducted, one by the Institute and the other by Nissan as part of frontal crash test verification. Ratings are based on both tests.
Injury Measures:
In each test, measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity. Head acceleration from the roof rail hit was low in the test conducted by Nissan.
Restraints / Dummy Kinematics:
Dummy movement was well controlled in both tests. During rebound in the test conducted by Nissan, the dummy's head hit the roof rail. During the test conducted by the Institute, the driver side curtain and thorax airbags deployed, and the dummy's head rebounded into the side curtain airbag without coming close to any stiff structure that could cause injury.
