Used Car Safety Report

The Nissan Navara has been awarded a 4 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.

2 Star Driver Protection Poor
1 Star Driver Protection Very Poor

The Nissan Navara 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.

The tested model of Nissan Navara (D40) was introduced in Australia during 2005. An enhancement to the airbag software was introduced late in 2007 and this rating applies to airbag-equipped vehicles with this enhancement. Nissan Australia is conducting a related service campaign for earlier vehicles.

The Nissan Navara scored 6.88 out of 16 in the offset crash test. The integrity of the passenger compartment was compromised. Protection from serious chest and leg injury was weak for the driver.

The vehicle scored 16 out of 16 in the side impact crash test.

Important note: The European model with dual airbags and seat belt pretensioners was tested by Euro NCAP. Australasian specifications may vary and therefore models sold in Australasia might provide different levels of protection 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.

Safety equipment, as tested, not standard on all variants 

Dual front airbags and seat belt pretensioners (as fitted to the tested vehicle) are optional on the 4x4 RX and standard on other variants. Occupant protection can be expected to be worse without these features. Antilock brakes (ABS) with brake assist are also optional on the 4x4 RX and standard on other variants.

Three point seat belts are fitted to all seats. These provide better protection than a two point (lap) seat belt.

Frontal Offset Test Results

Region Score Score Type Maximum Score
Frontal Offset* 6.88 pts (out of 16)
Head/Neck 4 pts
Chest 1.32 pts
Upper Legs 1.56 pts
Lower Legs 0 pts

The integrity of the passenger compartment was compromised in the offset crash test. The clutch pedal moved rearwards by 177mm and upwards 46mm. The footwell ruptured. The steering wheel hub moved 52mm rearward, 44mm upward and 43mm sideways. The front ("A") pillar moved 63mm rearwards. All doors remained closed during the crash. After the crash the driver’s door could be opened with normal effort.

The airbag cushioned the head of the driver and contact was stable. Dash components were a potential source of injury for the driver and passenger knees. The passenger's head was cushioned by the airbag.

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

The side impact test simulates a small car striking the driver's door of the vehicle under test. It is based on a regulation test but the regulation does not apply to vehicles with a high seat height like the Navara. Experience shows that such vehicles can be expected to perform well in this test and the Navara scored full marks.

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).

The part of the bonnet surface most likely to be hit by an adult's head was rated predominantly fair for the protection it offered. All other areas - bonnet surface likely to be hit by a child's head, the front edge of the bonnet and the bumper - were rated as predominantly poor.
