Nissan Intelligent Mobility vision to bring Safety Shield 360 to top-selling models
Nissan is introducing Safety Shield 360, a suite of six advanced active safety and driver-assist technologies, as standard equipment on all of its top-selling models by 2021.
"Our philosophy is to bring Nissan Intelligent Mobility technologies to market in our most popular and affordable vehicles," said Denis Le Vot, Chairman, Nissan North America. "Safety Shield 360 combines six advanced systems to give models like Altima and Rogue a class-leading package of technologies that can improve safety and the overall driving experience for Nissan owners."
Nissan Safety Shield 360 will first be introduced as standard equipment on SV and SL grades of the upcoming 2019 Rogue, 2019 Rogue Sport, and the all-new 2019 Altima, which all go on sale at Nissan dealers in fall 2018. The suite of advanced driver-assist systems includes Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Departure Warning, High Beam Assist, and Rear Automatic Braking.
Safety Shield 360 is the latest development of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, the company's vision for changing how cars are driven, powered, and integrated into society.
Another key component of Nissan Intelligent Mobility is ProPILOT Assist, which will be available on the 2019 Altima. ProPILOT Assist is designed to ease driver workload by reducing the amount of driver acceleration, steering, and braking input under certain driving conditions, during single-lane highway driving. ProPILOT Assist helps drivers stay centered in the lane, navigate stop-and-go traffic, maintain a set vehicle speed, and maintain a set distance to the vehicle ahead. Currently, Nissan offers ProPILOT Assist on the 2018 Rogue and the all-electric 2018 LEAF.
