The U.S. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has awarded the completely redesigned 2015 Nissan Murano a “Top Safety Pick Plus” vehicle safety rating, which is the group‟s highest available ranking.

The 2015 Murano scored “Good” in all five “Top Safety Pick” categories and earned “Top Safety Pick Plus” status with a “Superior” rating for front crash prevention for models equipped with optional Forward Emergency Braking.

Two years ago IIHS introduced more stringent criteria and requirements for the “Top Safety Pick Plus” designation.

The established “Top Safety Pick” award recognizes passenger vehicles that excel in protecting passengers in moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests and also achieve a “good” or “acceptable” rating in the small overlap frontal test.

For a “Top Safety Pick Plus,” the vehicle must meet “Top Safety Pick” criteria, as well as earn an “advanced” or “superior” rating for front crash prevention.
