Sept. 27, 2019—Nissan earned a TOP SAFETY PICK award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety for two models.

The 2019-20 Rogue earns the award when equipped with specific headlights, while the 2019-20 Maxima qualifies with specific headlights available after June 2019.

The Rogue qualifies for the award thanks to a new acceptable rating in the passenger-side small overlap crash test. The rating applies to 2018-20 Rogues built after April 2018. At that time, Nissan added reinforcements to the passenger-side door-hinge pillar and door sill to provide better protection in small overlap crashes on that side. The Rogue already earned good ratings in the five other crashworthiness evaluations.

The Maxima, a midsize car, earns good ratings in six IIHS crashworthiness evaluations.
