Used Car Safety Report

The Nissan X-TRAIL has been awarded a 3 star Driver Protection rating in the latest Used Car Safety Rating (UCSR) report. UCSR are reported annually by the Monash University Accident Research Centre (MUARC). Ratings are estimated from data on real crashes reported to police in Australia and New Zealand and provide a very high level of confidence. The UCSR report classifies cars according to where their rating lies in relation to a best performance benchmark. The Driver Protection rating measures the relative safety of cars in preventing serious injury to their own drivers in crashes.

The Nissan X-TRAIL also received a protection for other road users rating in the UCSR report. The protection for other road users rating indicates the level of protection that a vehicle provides for other unprotected road users (other car drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists or motorcyclists) in the event of a crash.

Data suplied by euroNCAP

The tested model of Nissan X-Trail was introduced in late 2001.

The Nissan X-Trail scored 9.10 out of 16 in the offset crash test. The passenger compartment held its shape well except for excessive pedal movement. Protection from serious leg injury was poor for the driver.

The Australian vehicle (without side airbags) scored 16 out of 16 in the side impact crash test. Zero points were scored in the Australian pole test.

Important note: The left hand drive European model was used for the offset test conducted by Euro NCAP. Australian specifications may vary and therefore models sold in Australia might provide different levels of protection in the offset test to those described on this page.


Safety Feature Summary

The safety feature information below is subject to change without notice. For up to date safety feature specifications for all variants, please see the safety feature table to the right or contact the manufacturer.

Dual front airbags are standard equipment, as are ABS brakes. Side airbags were standard in Europe in 2002 but were not available in Australia by mid-2005. Electronic stability control is not available in Australia but is available in Europe. The front seat belt buckles are mounted on the seats and the upper anchorages are adjustable. These features improve the fit of the seat belt.

Pretensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash.

Frontal Offset Test Results

Region Score Score Type Maximum Score
Frontal Offset* 9.1 pts (out of 16)
Head/Neck 4 pts
Chest 2.74 pts
Upper Legs 0 pts
Lower Legs 2.36 pts

The passenger compartment held its shape well in the offset crash test. The brake pedal moved rearwards by 117mm and upwards 40mm. The steering wheel hub moved rearwards 46mm, upwards 54mm and sideways 13mm. The front ("A") pillar moved 32mm rearwards. The width of the driver's doorway shortened by 29mm. All doors remained closed during the crash. After the crash a high manual effort was required to open the driver’s door.

The airbag cushioned the head of the driver and contact was stable. Steering column components were potential sources of injury to the driver's knees. The passenger's head was cushioned by the airbag. The dash had a potential source of injury for the passenger's inboard knee.

The Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) provides consumers with independent and transparent information on the level of occupant and pedestrian protection provided by different new car models, in the most common types of crashes, through its star rating program.

Side Impact Test Results

Region Score Score Type Maximum Score
Side Impact* 16 pts (out of 16)
Head 4 pts
Chest 4 pts
Abdomen 4 pts
Pelvis 4 pts

This test simulates a small car striking the driver's door of the vehicle under test. High seat vehicles like the X-Trail can be expected to perform relatively well in this particular side impact test.

ANCAP chose to conduct a pole test as part of a research program. This is usually an optional test for vehicles with headprotecting side airbags such as curtains. The tested vehicle did not have these and head protection was poor so it scored zero points out of a maximum of two points for the pole test.

2-Star Pedestrian Rating

Pedestrian Summary

A separate pedestrian impact test is conducted. This test estimates injuries to pedestrians struck by a vehicle travelling at 40 km/h. The more stars the better (maximum 4 stars).
