The tested model of Nissan Patrol cab/chassis was introduced in Australia during 2008. This rating only applies to models fitted with dual airbags.

The Patrol cab/chassis scored 5.6 out of 16 in the offset crash test. The passenger compartment lost structural integrity. Protection from serious leg injury was poor for the driver. Chest protection was marginal for the driver and passenger. Driver head protection was also marginal.

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.

This model has minimal safety features. Dual front airbags became standard in 2009. A 2-point seat belt is fitted to the centre front seat. This provides inferior protection compared with a 3-point point (lap) seat belt. This seating position also lacks the protection of an airbag.

There are no top tether anchorages for child restraints so this vehicle is unsuitable for transporting children under the age of four.

Frontal Offset Crash Test Results

Region Score Score Type Maximum Score
Frontal Offset* 5.6 pts (out of 16)
Head/Neck 2 pts
Chest 1.6 pts
Upper Legs 2 pts
Lower Legs 0 pts

The passenger compartment lost structural integrity in the offset crash test. There was severe footwell deformation and rupture. The brake pedal moved rearwards by 331mm and upwards 202mm, to a position where it posed a hazard to the groin of the dummy. The steering wheel hub moved 128mm rearward, 212mm upward and 19mm sideways. The front ("A") pillar moved 210mm rearwards. All doors remained closed during the crash. After the crash tools were required to open both the driver door and passenger door. The tailshaft contacted the fuel tank shield but the tank was undamaged.

Driver contact with the airbag was not stable, partly due to excessive steering column and seat mount movement. Steering column components were a potential source of injury for the driver's knees. The passenger's head was cushioned by the airbag.

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. 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.
