The 2009 Nissan Murano scores well in federal and insurance-industry crash tests, and sports an impressive array of standard safety equipment.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that the 2009 Nissan Murano earns a four-star rating for front crash protection, and a five-star rating for side-impact protection. The agency also gives the Murano a four-star rollover rating. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) ranked the 2009 Nissan Murano a “top safety pick” as it scored a “good” rating in all crash tests and offers standard stability control.
MyRide notes the Murano’s impressive list of standard safety features, such as anti-lock brakes and its available all-wheel-drive system. The Murano also has curtain airbags and standard tire pressure monitors, and Edmunds.com adds that active front head restraints are also standard features.
Cars.com adds that the Murano’s curtain airbags protect the front- and second-row passengers, and “are designed to deploy in the event of a rollover, too.”
