Rearward visibility is good, as long as the third-row seat is down.

Even with all the mirrors well-adjusted, the Armada has large blind spots, so I would recommend attentive driving at all times.

The 2011 Nissan Armada isn't especially impressive with regard to safety. But in all fairness, it hasn't been tested to the degree some of its rivals have.

Front side and full-length side curtain airbags, covering both rows, are standard, as are electronic stability control and anti-lock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution.

The Nissan Armada hasn't been tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), and the federal government hasn't yet tested it either under the completely revamped testing and ratings system introduced for 2011. Under the former federal tests, the Armada received a mix of four- and five-star results for frontal impact, but it wasn't tested for side impact. Its federal rollover score remains just three stars—typical for a tall SUV design.

While there's a pretty good view out when driving, thanks to the high vantage point and ample window space, headrests and the vehicle's excessive height can get in the way of visibility when parking. Rear parking sensors are included, though a camera system is optional.

Conclusion

The 2011 Nissan Armada has a strong feature set, but there's not a lot to go on to assure it offers strong occupant protection.

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.
