4 Star Driver ProtectionUCSR Logo

Driver Protection rating based on analysis of real world crashes.



Used Car Safety Report

The Nissan Dualis 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.

The tested model of Nissan DUALIS was introduced in Australia in October 2007.

The DUALIS scored 15.83 out of 16 in the offset crash test. The passenger compartment held its shape very well. There was a slight risk of serious chest injury for the driver. All other injury measurements were good.

ANCAP awarded the non-curtain model a default score of 16 out of 16 in the side impact crash test. A separate ANCAP rating is available for the curtain-equipped DUALIS.

Important note: The left-hand-drive European model (marketed as the Qashqai) 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. A 2 litre engine is standard in Australia.


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, antilock brakes (ABS) and electronic brake distribution (EBD) are standard equipment. Side airbags, head-protecting side curtain airbags and electronic stability control (ESC) are optional on the ST variant and standard on the TI variant. Intelligent seat belt reminders earned three bonus points from Euro NCAP but they are not fitted to the Australasian DUALIS.

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. A three point seat belt is fitted to the centre rear seat. This provides better protection than a two point (lap) seat belt.

Frontal Offset Test Results

Region Score Score Type Maximum Score
Frontal Offset* 15.83 pts (out of 16)
Head/Neck 4 pts
Chest 3.83 pts
Upper Legs 4 pts
Lower Legs 4 pts

The passenger compartment held its shape well in the offset crash test. The clutch pedal moved rearwards by 65mm and upwards 10mm. The steering wheel hub moved 45mm rearward, 2mm upward and 8mm sideways. The front ("A") pillar moved 5mm forwards. All doors remained closed during the crash and opened with normal effort after the crash.

The airbag cushioned the head of the driver and contact was stable. There were no knee hazards.

Side Impact Test Results

Side Impact* 16 pts (out of 16)
Head 4 pts
Chest 4 pts
Abdomen 4 pts
Pelvis 4 pts

The side impact test normally used by ANCAP 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 DUALIS. Experience shows that such vehicles can be expected to perform well in this test so ANCAP has decided to award full score for these vehicles instead of conducting a crash test.
