Earlier this week the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) upgraded the 2016 Nissan Sentra to its highest rating of “Top Safety Pick Plus” when equipped with optional Forward Emergency Braking technology. The Sentra had previously held the agency’s Top Safety Pick designation prior to IIHS confirmation of the required front crash prevention technology performance. In order to earn the IIHS “Top Safety Pick Plus” designation, a vehicle must earn a “Good” or better on all five crashworthiness categories and also receive an “Advanced” or “Superior” rating for front crash prevention.
