SAFETY | 8 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

Five stars, front driver impact; four stars, front passenger impact; three stars, rollover resistance
NHTSA

the broad expanse of glass allows for good 360-degree visibility”
Kelley Blue Book

With regard to safety, the 2010 Nissan Armada doesn't fare quite as well as its rivals, but it definitely has size and weight on its side. The insurance-affiliated IIHS hasn't tested the Armada, but it receives four- and five-star results in frontal impact protection from the federal government, with three-star results in rollover because of the Armada’s high center of mass.

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. Edmunds reports that a rear-obstacle-detection system also comes standard.

The Auto Channel notes that the 2010 Nissan Armada "earned a rollover rating of three of five stars," which is not altogether unexpected on such a large vehicle.

Forward and side visibility is great, due to the high perch, but rearward visibility when parking is tougher because of the thick rear pillars. ConsumerGuide says, "visibility is commanding," thanks to the Nissan Armada's "jumbo door mirrors and unobtrusive headrests." Kelley Blue Book adds that "the broad expanse of glass allows for good 360-degree visibility," and The Auto Channel points out that the "Rear Proximity Sensor System" will "beep when you are close to an obstacle," further aiding parking lot driving.

Conclusion

The 2010 Nissan Armada's crash-test results aren't at the top of its class, but it does have a good feature set.

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.
