Used Car Safety Report

The Nissan Patrol 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 Nissan Patrol 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 Patrol was introduced in Australia during 2002.

The Nissan Patrol scored 6.17 out of 16 in the offset crash test. The passenger compartment did not hold its shape well. Protection from serious leg injury was poor for the driver. There was a risk of serious chest injury for the driver and passenger. The vehicle was awarded a default score of 16 out of 16 in the side impact crash test.


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 and ABS brakes are standard on the tested STS variant. The DX variant only has a driver airbag. Side (thorax) airbags, ABS brakes and a reversing camera are available on some variants.

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. Seat belt pre-tensioners are not available. A two point seat belt is fitted to the centre rear seat. This provides inferior protection compared with a three point seat belt.

Frontal Offset* 6.17 pts (out of 16)
Head/Neck 3 pts
Chest 1.71 pts
Upper Legs 2 pts
Lower Legs 0 pts

The passenger compartment was compromised in the offset crash test. The road wheel moved rearwards substantially and intruded into the driver's footwell, which ruptured. The brake pedal moved rearwards by 274mm and upwards 181mm relative to the driver's seat. The dash moved 105mm towards the driver. The steering wheel hub moved rearwards 134mm, upwards 148mm and sideways 41mm. The front ("A") pillar moved 105mm rearwards. The width of the driver's door opening shortened by 105mm. All doors remained closed during the crash. After the crash tools were required to open the driver’s door.

The airbag cushioned the head of the driver and contact was stable. Steering column components were a potential source of injury for the driver's 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 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 seating position like the Patrol. Such vehicles can be expected to perform well in this particular side impact test so ANCAP has decided to award full score for these vehicles instead of conducting a crash 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.
