Nissan Urvan (E25)

New Zealand only

The tested model of Nissan Urvan was first manufactured in 2001. It is available in New Zealand but not Australia. After ANCAP decided to crash test this model it was advised that stocks of new models were no longer being shipped to New Zealand. However, in view of the second-hand imported vehicle market in New Zealand, ANCAP decided to proceed with the crash test. Dual front airbags and antilock brakes (ABS) are standard equipment. A load-sensing brake valve is also standard. Pretensioners are fitted to the front outboard seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash. A two point seat belt is fitted to the fold-down centre front seat. This provides inferior protection compared with a three-point seat belt. This seating position also lacks airbag protection.

1 Star. The Urvan scored just 1.32 out of 16 in the offset crash test. The passenger compartment deformed excessively. Protection from serious head and foot injury was poor for the driver. Neck, chest and leg protection were weak. The vehicle was awarded a default score of 16 out of 16 in the side impact crash test. However, the low offset score meant that the vehicle was limited to a 1 star rating and an overall score of 8.49 (the maximum available for a 1 star rating).
