Nissan Tops IIHS Safety Picks

Vehicles like the all new Nissan Juke have topped the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) picks for safest small vehicles heading to dealerships next year.

Available for a test drive at Hawkinson Nissan, just outside of Chicago, IL, the Juke crossover comfortably seats 4, 5 if you really need to, but still holds enough cargo that you can take the powerful 4-door cross country or on vacation.  

As the report explains, "The IIHS, which is funded by the insurance industry, also released a list of the 10 small cars that claim top crash-test scores as well as the highest fuel economy ratings in their class."1

Other Nissan vehicles which did not make it into the top spots, but still rated as very safe, were the Nissan Sentra and Nissan Versa.  

"The bottom line is that small-car safety is improving, and that many of the most fuel-efficient cars that are available today are now available with very high levels of crash protection, which wasn't the case a few years ago," said David Zuby, the institute's chief research officer, in a telephone interview.2
