The NV's comprehensive safety strategy uses smart technology to help protect your most valuable assets.
The air bag system incorporates seat belt sensors to inflate the dual-stage supplemental front air bags according to crash severity and seat belt usage. Also available are side-impact supplemental air bags built into the seat, so they move with you. In addition, available roof-mounted curtain supplemental air bags help provide head protection in the event of a side impact or rollover.1
A fully boxed full-length ladder frame is at the core of every NV. This frame was specifically designed for the NV, and is not shared with any other Nissan vehicles. Some of our competitors use 3-sided open "C" rails instead. But you don't need to be a structural engineer to know the obvious - when building, 4 walls are stronger than three.
When Nissan engineers talked to commercial vehicle drivers, one of their greatest concerns was inadequate braking power and a soft, spongy feel to the brake pedal. To answer those concerns, the NV series features 4-wheel disc brakes with massive 14" front and rear ventilated discs, to provide maximum contact area for rapid heat dissipation, long-lasting durability and confident towing.
To make the most of the brakes, advanced technologies are always there to help protect you. An Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) rapidly pumps the brakes during hard braking to help keep your wheels from locking up, thus helping you to steer around an obstacle. Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD) senses additional weight, whether it's a loaded cargo area or a full tank of gas, and sends extra force to the rear brakes.
1Air bags are only a supplemental restraint system; always wear your seat belt. Even with the occupant-classification sensor, rear-facing child restraints should not be placed in the front-passenger's seat. Also, all children 12 and under should ride in the rear seat properly secured in child restraints, booster seats, or seat belts according to their size. Air bags will only inflate in certain accidents; see your Owner's Manual for more details. Inflated air bags shown for illustration purposes only. Actual air bags deflate after deployment.
