One of the most important things you can look for in a new vehicle is its safety features. While most vehicles have airbags, traction control and other safety features, some vehicles provide more than average features. When you visit 66 Automall, you can learn more about Nissan’s safety features for each model.
2014 Murano Safety Features: The Murano’s safety features include front and rear head airbags, dual front side-mounted airbags and passenger occupant sensing airbag deactivation sensors. The deactivation sensors keep the airbags from activating for no reason, which saves you some money should you get in an accident.

Other safety features include four-wheel ABS brakes; and the front and rear disc brakes are ventilated to help keep them cooler when you have to stand on them to avoid an accident. The Murano also features emergency braking assist and electronic brakeforce distribution, which works in conjunction with traction and stability control to keep the Murano from rolling over if you spin out.
Additional safety features include an anti-theft system, an engine immobilizer, dusk sensing headlights, auto delay off headlights and front fog/driving lights.
IIHS Crash Ratings: Overall, the 2009 through 2013 Nissan Murano received good Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) crash test ratings. The ratings for 2014 have not been released as of yet. For moderate overlap front test results, the 2013 Murano received a “good” rating. This test measures driver injury and driver side compartment intrusion when there is someone in the driver’s seat.
Side impact tests measure the structure and occupant injury when the vehicle is hit from the side. The 2013 Murano received a “good” rating for this test.
Seats and head restraints are also tested for neck injury when you are hit from the rear at low to moderate speed. This test measures the distance between the head of the occupant and the head rest plus the distance from the top of the headrest to the bottom of the occupant’s head. If a seat receives a “good” rating, it is tested again for taller people by rear-ending the vehicle with another similar-weight vehicle going 20 mph. The 2013 Murano received a “good” rating for both tests.
