The tested model of Nissan Tiida was introduced in Australia during 2006. Vehicles tested after 1 January 2008 require Electronic Stability Control in order achieve a 5 star rating. This vehicle was tested prior to this date and may or may not meet this new requirement.
Dual front airbags are standard equipment. Side airbags, head-protecting side curtains and ABS/EBD brakes are standard on the ST-L, Q Hatch and Ti variants. The front seat belt buckles are mounted on the seats and the upper anchorages are adjustable. These features improve the fit of the seat belt. Pre-tensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash. A two point seat belt is fitted to the centre rear seat. This provides inferior protection compared with a three point seat belt.
