All-New Nissan Micra Awarded Five-Star Euro NCAP Safety Rating in the UK

The all-new Nissan Micra has been awarded a Five-Star Safety rating in the UK by Euro NCAP, courtesy to the standard fitment of intelligent driving technologies within the Safety Assist category of testing.

Testing of the new Micra was carried out under Euro NCAP’s newly reformed protocols; the UK range of Micra achieves the maximum possible five stars due to an extensive set of safety features as standard across all grades.

Each Micra is integrated with Intelligent Emergency Braking (IEB), an intelligent driving technology specifically designed to detect a slowing or stopping vehicle ahead and automatically apply the brakes – this can avoid an impact or reduce the severity, depending on the relative speeds.

The Pedestrian Recognition technology is linked to IEB as standard across the range, along with Intelligent Lane Intervention (ILI). When ILI is activated – for example, by crossing a line in the centre of the road the steering wheel gently vibrates. The car’s brakes are automatically applied - dependent on the direction of travel required, to guide the driver safely back into the correct lane. The Isofix Car Child Seat fitting system can also be used with the new Micra, including in the front seat for optimal child protection.

Additional safety features on every Micra include: Electronic Stability Programme, Anti-Lock Brakes, Hill Start Assist and comes with six airbags as standard, plus seat belt warnings and seat belt height adjustment in the front. A Speed Limiter, Automatic Headlight Sensor, Automatic Hazard Lights and a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System are also fitted.
