The 2012 Nissan Murano includes a well-rounded list of safety features, along with ratings that are good but not quite top-notch.

The Murano earns mostly 'good,' ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), except for a 'marginal' rating in the roof-strength category--which is related to the likelihood of rollover injury.

In National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) testing, the Murano gets a mix of four- and five-star ratings, on a five-star scale--including an overall score of four stars.

Outward visibility is about on par for this class, though as is typical the sloping roofline and thick rear pillar can cut into the view back when changing lanes or backing up.

All the safety equipment you'd expect in this class is standard, including anti-lock brakes, electronic stability control, front side airbags, and side-curtain bags, plus active front head restraints.

Conclusion

The 2012 Nissan Murano isn't class-leading, but its list of safety features is respectable.

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.
