Nissan is creating a brighter and safer future by making Safety Shield 360 standard on every Sentra. []
Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection
Sentra looks out for what’s ahead and for people crossing in front of you. Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection monitors your speed and distance between you and the car ahead and can let you know if you need to slow down. [] It can also automatically engage the brakes to help avoid a frontal collision or lessen the severity of an impact. And when it detects a pedestrian in the crosswalk, it can stop you in your tracks.
Rear Automatic Braking
Save your bumper. Sentra with class-exclusive standard Rear Automatic Braking watches out directly behind you for large stationary items you might not see. [][TK] If it detects something and you fail to stop, it can automatically engage the brakes to help avoid a rear collision or lessen the severity of an impact.
Blind Spot Warning
Wait. Was that a car over there? Sentra with Blind Spot Warning helps keep an eye on the blind spot area and gives you a heads-up if it detects a vehicle hiding there. []
Rear Cross Traffic Alert
Fear no parking lot or driveway. When you’re backing out of your space, Rear Cross Traffic Alert watches around the rear of your Sentra and can warn you about cars it detects creeping up on you from either side. []
Lane Departure Warning
Hold it right there. Lane Departure Warning helps make sure you change lanes only when you mean to. [] If the system detects that you’re drifting over, haptic feedback on the steering wheel can let you know.
High Beam Assist
High Beam Assist can automatically deactivate Sentra’s high beams if it detects an oncoming vehicle, which automatically makes you a more polite driver. After the driver has passed, the system can reactivate the high beams.
Sentra takes technology seriously, so you can drive with precision. With a suite of Nissan Intelligent Mobility™️ dynamic drive technologies, you’ll own the on-ramp and take bumps in stride. []
Intelligent Cruise Control
Go with the flow. Using sophisticated sensors, available Intelligent Cruise Control helps keep you a set distance from the vehicle ahead by braking and accelerating when necessary. Now you’re really cruising. []
Intelligent Forward Collision Warning
Sentra is on the lookout when you can’t see what’s going on up there. Class-exclusive standard Intelligent Forward Collision Warning watches up to two cars ahead, and when it detects sudden deceleration in front of you, it gives you a warning to slow down. [] [TK]
Intelligent Around View Monitor
Pull into that space with your pride and rims intact. The available class-exclusive Intelligent Around View Monitor makes parking easy with a virtual composite 360° bird’s-eye view of your Sentra. [][TK]

The available 7" Advanced Drive-Assist Display keeps you in command with audio information, text message alerts, tire pressure readings, and safety alerts. It can even warn you if it senses you need a break. []

Nissan Sentra safety ratings
Award-winning safety performance
The Sentra has been awarded Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s TOP SAFETY PICK in recognition of its crash safety performance when equipped with optional projector headlights. []
The Sentra comes with 10 air bags, including Nissan’s Advanced Air Bag System, which features dual-stage supplemental front air bags with seat belt and occupant-classification sensors. [] But that’s just the start of what the Sentra offers to help keep the driver and passengers safe.
Anti-lock Braking System
When you have to brake suddenly, Sentra’s ABS can pump the brakes faster than you ever could. This helps you maintain control by preventing wheel lockup, which in turn allows you to steer around obstacles in your path.
Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD) can detect extra weight in the back and adjusts the rear brakes accordingly, while Brake Assist applies maximum braking power when it senses you are in an emergency to help you stop quicker. []
Traction Control System
The Traction Control System (TCS) means you won’t be wasting power just spinning the tires. When it senses drive-wheel spin, it responds by reducing throttle or applying brake pressure to specific wheels.
In slick road conditions, Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) monitors steering and braking and responds by reducing engine output and/or applying brake pressure to specific wheels. []
Zone Body construction
This advanced body construction combines impact-absorbing structures with a high-strength cabin, which helps provide protection for you and your passengers.
Advanced Air Bag System
The Advanced Air Bag System includes dual-stage supplemental front air bags with seat belts and occupant-classification sensors. [] Sentra also features eight additional air bags.
Tire Pressure Monitoring System with Easy-Fill Tire Alert
Sentra’s Tire Pressure Monitoring System can let you know whenever a tire is low. [] And the class-exclusive Easy-Fill Tire Alert takes the guesswork out of filling your tires, with a beep of the horn to let you know when you’ve reached the correct pressure. [][TK]
LATCH and Snug Kids®
The LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren) system lets you secure compatible child restraints in the back seat without a seat belt or locking clip. Nissan’s Snug Kids® is our Child Safety Seat Fit Program.
