Nissan has announced that the 2021 Nissan Murano has earned the top safety rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) – Top Safety Pick+.

To qualify for the top award, a vehicle has to receive good ratings in all six IIHS crashworthiness tests — driver- and passenger-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraints. It must also be available with a front crash prevention system that earns advanced or superior ratings and come with good or acceptable headlights across all trim levels.

The Murano’s standard front crash prevention system earned a superior rating and its standard LED headlights earned a good rating.
