The new generation of the Nissan Rogue has recently managed to score a Top Safety Pick+ award after being crash tested by the IIHS.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has rated the new Nissan Rogue generation with a Top Safety Pick+ award, after being crash tested. The IIHS has found that the 2014 model has performed well in the small overlap front test, with low risk of injuries, while it optional forward collision warning system was enough for avoiding accidents.

In order to qualify as a Top Safety Pick, the tested vehicle must earn good ratings in the moderate overlap front, side, head restraint and roof strength, along with the good or acceptable result in the small overlap front test. For the extra Plus rating, the car must get the basic, advanced or superior rating for the front crash prevention.

The model is getting a seven-passenger seating, standard four-wheel independent suspension system, ABS, Electric Power-assisted Steering, VDC, TCS, Hill Start Assist, Active Ride Control, Active Engine Braking and more. The Rogue is being assembled in Smyrna Tennessee and in Japan.
