Starting with 2013 models, IIHS introduced a more strict criteria to include the “Top Safety Pick” front, side, rollover and rear crash tests, as well as the newly added small overlap frontal test. The new 2013 Nissan Altima has scored well for each of these tests, adding the “Top Safety Pick Plus” award to the 5-star safety rating it received from NHTSA.

“Driver and passenger safety are top priorities for Nissan, which is why we make features like Safety Shield technologies available,” said Bob Yakushi, Nissan’s director of product safety. “The 2013 Altima is truly Nissan’s most innovative Altima ever, and the ‘Top Safety Pick Plus’ designation by IIHS reflects the engineering and design that have gone into this car to make it stand out in the class.”
