SAFETY | 7 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

'Good,' frontal offset; 'good,' side impact; 'acceptable,' rear; 'acceptable,' roof strength
IIHS

Four stars overall; four stars frontal; five stars side
NHTSA




The 2011 Nissan Altima has only respectable safety scores in a class of overachievers, which means that there are better choices for those who are especially worried about safety in a mid-size sedan.

The Altima sedan and Coupe models get top 'good' scores from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) in frontal and side impact tests, but earn only 'acceptable' for rear impact and roof strength. And in the new, revised NCAP testing from the federal government and introduced for 2011, the Altima sedan earns four stars overall, including four stars in frontal impact and five stars for side protection.

Front, side, and curtain airbags, along with electronic stability control and anti-lock brakes, are now all standard across the line, along with active head restraints that should help reduce the chance of whiplash.

Conclusion

The 2011 Nissan Altima doesn't have class-leading safety ratings, but it does include all the features shoppers expect.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
