NISSAN announced that Teana, the brand’s flagship sedan, received the highest assessment in both adult and child categories for the first time ever in Asean NCAP history. Teana set a new record with a perfect 16-point score for Adult Occupant Protection (AOP) and also became the first car in the region to score a 5-Star rating for Child Occupant Protection (COP), with 88 per cent compliance.
The result was delivered by Asean NCAP Chairman Prof Dr Wong Shaw Voon at the Thailand International Motor Expo on December 1, 2014.
Prof Wong said, “Congratulations to Nissan for this achievement. This new record means a lot to both the consumers and car manufacturers. The perfect score in AOP as well as being the first to reach 5-Star level in COP is a commendable result and has set another benchmark for a large family sedan.”
“Nissan is proud to be recognised for our world-class safety standards,” said Toru Hasegawa, corporate vice president of Nissan Motor Co, Ltd and president of Nissan Motor Asia Pacific.
“We are committed to continue improving our products with advanced engineering and safety technologies to promote the safety of both drivers and passengers in Nissan vehicles.”
Nissan Teana is equipped with a suite of safety features that are available as standard for all variants, including six air bags (Dual SRS, Side and Curtain), Anti-Lock Breaking System (ABS) and Electronic Stability Control (ESC). ISOFIX and top tether are available as standard features to ensure the safety of the child occupant.
