Nissan vs. Toyota: Which has more impressive safety features?

Nissan and Toyota have dedicated themselves to providing advanced safety systems on every model in their lineups.

  • Driver Attention Alert (DAA)
  • Front and rear sonar system
  • Adaptive headlights
  • Intelligent forward collision warning, blind spot warning, lane intervention, back-up intervention, around view monitor, and distance control

Nissan vs. Toyota: Is there a difference in technology features?

NissanConnect® is engineered to combine entertainment, navigation and security in ways that no other dash-mounted system, including the Toyota Entune® system, can. Technology features that you’ll only find in a new Nissan car, truck, or SUV include:

  • Available NissanConnect® Services powered by SiriusXM® emergency response services
