According to Khabar Khodro
, the 2021 Nissan Juke – the second generation of the small SUV – has earned a five-star safety rating from the Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) ahead of a mid 2020 showroom arrival.
The Nissan Juke earned a five-star rating for scoring highly across four disciplines, including adult occupant protection (94 per cent), child occupant protection (87 per cent), vulnerable road user protection (81 per cent) and safety assist tests (71 per cent).
"The Nissan Juke is a good all-round safety performer,” an ANCAP spokesperson said in a statement.
ANCAP noted that the vehicle was also well-designed in case of a collision with pedestrians.
However, while ANCAP praised the Juke’s active lane keep assist and autonomous emergency braking systems, the organisation conceded they were not adequate in all scenarios, stating: "the system is not capable of intervening in the more critical emergency lane keeping scenarios”.
Because the new Juke has already launched in other regions, its crash testing was carried out according to 2019 standards.
