SAFETY | 7 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

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

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




The Nissan Maxima ha a long list safety features, but it may not have meet all family shopper's needs. While the the 2014 Maxima hasn't yet been rated by the IIHS, last year's model's only received "acceptable" ratings for its roof strength.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gives the car only three out of five stars for frontal impacts, though the Maxima receives five-star ratings in side impact and rollover tests.

Outward visibility is a strong point for the Maxima, despite the curvy exterior, and an available rearview monitor does provide additional help when parking.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave last year's Maxima top 'good' scores for frontal and side impact, but it still receives only a 'marginal' in the seat-based rear-impact category—indicating a much higher chance of whiplash than in other vehicles—and it rates only 'acceptable' in both the agency's new roof strength test and small overlap frontal test. The results aren't altogether so stellar from the federal government either. In federal NCAP testing, the Maxima has earned a lackluster three stars (out of five) for frontal impact, though it gets five-star side ratings.

Conclusion

Safety scores for the latest Maxima lag, with only "acceptable" ratings for roof-crush strength.

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.
