Safety features equipped in the 2021 Nissan Altima 

When it comes to looking for a new vehicle, safety should be a top priority.

2021 Nissan Altima – Rear Automatic Braking 

With Rear Automatic Braking, you’ll be saving your bumper wear and tear and you’ll have peace of mind anytime you put your Altima in reverse. The Rear Automatic Braking system watches directly behind you for stationary objects you might not see. If the technology detects something that is in your driving path as your back up, it can automatically engage the brakes to avoid a rear collision, or at least lessen the impact to a certain degree.  

2021 Nissan Altima – Rear Cross Traffic Alert 

The 2021 Nissan Altima also comes equipped with Rear Cross Traffic Alert. This feature, like the Rear Automatic Braking feature, helps assist you when trying to back up. The Rear Cross-Traffic Alert watches around the rear area of your vehicle and can warn you about oncoming pedestrians, objects, or other vehicles that may be approaching from either side of your vehicle while you are in the process of backing up.  

2021 Nissan Altima – Blind Spot Warning 

Blind Spot Warning helps ensure that no matter where other vehicles are on the road, you’ll know when it’s safe to switch lanes. The equipped Blind Spot Warning feature keeps an eye on each of your blind spots on your vehicle and gives you a heads-up signal whenever it notices a vehicle hiding in that spot.  

2021 Nissan Altima – Lane Departure Warning 

With Lane Departure Warning, your Altima will alert you of when you might be intruding into other lanes. The technology equipped in the Lane Departure Warning system will let you know when you might be merging into a new lane unexpectedly and will send off a signal if this does happen while out on the road.
