Five stars for Nissan Juke

The Nissan Juke has become the latest vehicle to receive a five-star safety rating from the Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP).

RACQ spokesperson Renee Smith congratulated Nissan after it scored 94 percent for Adult Occupant Protection and 87 percent for Child Occupant Protection for its compact SUV.

“It’s great to see the Nissan Duke score highly in the four key assessment areas to earn a five-star safety rating,” Ms Smith said.

“In the side impact test, it scored full marks for adult and child occupant protection, which is a great result.

“The vehicle also earned full marks in the child restraint installation assessment, which looks at the car’s ability to hold a range of child restraints in each of the rear seating positions.

“This is helpful information for parents who might be looking for a new car as their family grows.”

Ms Smith said the outside safety of the vehicle was also recognised by ANCAP, with the front bumper providing good protection to the legs and pelvis of pedestrians.

“The car also has autonomous emergency braking, which is able to detect, avoid or mitigate collisions with pedestrians and cyclists,” she said.

“This is a great safety feature and one that will help protect the safety of all road users.

“If you’re in the market for a new vehicle, we always encourage motorists to do their research and look up the latest safety ratings by ANCAP to make sure they’re making a safe choice.”
