NASHVILLE, Tenn., March 20, 2014

NASHVILLE, Tenn., March 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Today, the Insurance
Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) awarded the completely redesigned 2014
Nissan Rogue a "Top Safety Pick Plus" vehicle safety rating, which is the
group's highest-available ranking. The 2014 Rogue scored "Good" in all five
"Top Safety Pick" categories and earned "Top Safety Pick Plus" status with a
basic rating for front crash prevention for models equipped with optional
Forward Collision Warning.

2014 Nissan Rogue

In 2013, IIHS introduced more stringent criteria and requirements for the "Top
Safety Pick Plus" designation. The established "Top Safety Pick" award
recognizes passenger vehicles that excel in protecting passengers in moderate
overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests and also achieve a
"good" or "acceptable" rating in the small overlap frontal test. For a "Top
Safety Pick Plus," the vehicle must meet "Top Safety Pick" criteria as well as
earn a "basic," "advanced" or "superior" rating for front crash prevention.

"Nissan has a long-standing commitment to safety and innovation, and this IIHS
rating is a very important milestone for the all-new 2014 Rogue," said Fred
Diaz, senior vice president, Sales & Marketing, Parts & Service, U.S.A, Nissan
North America, Inc. (NNA). "Rogue is the second best-selling vehicle in
Nissan's lineup, and with its standard and available safety features, we're
bringing a new level of affordable technologies and innovations to a growing
segment looking for fresh ideas."

Safety and security features standard on all 2014 Rogues include the Nissan
Advanced Air Bag System (AABS) with dual-stage supplemental front air bags
with seat belt and occupant classification sensors; front seat-mounted side
impact supplemental air bags; roof-mounted curtain side impact supplemental
air bags with rollover sensor for front and rear-seat outboard occupant head
protection; 3-point front and rear seatbelts, front seat belts with
pre-tensioners and load limiters and adjustable upper anchors; and LATCH
System (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren).

Every Rogue also offers child safety rear door locks; Zone Body construction
featuring front and rear crumple zones and occupant zone; Nissan Immobilizer
system and anti-theft alarm system; and Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
with position monitoring and Nissan's innovative, class-exclusive* Easy Fill
Tire Alert, which sounds the car horn to notify a person filling a tire with
air when the recommended tire pressure has been reached.

Also standard on Rogue are a suite of confidence-inspiring dynamic
technologies, including Active Trace Control, Active Engine Braking and Active
Ride Control. The Active Trace Control system utilizes Rogue's standard
Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) system to help improve cornering feel by
automatically applying the brakes or smoothing engine torque characteristics
while accelerating. Active Engine Braking uses the CVT helps slow the Rogue as
the driver brakes, resulting in less brake effort by the driver. Active Ride
Control helps smooth out the drive by automatically applying the brakes and
adjusting engine torque after the vehicle hits a bump, reducing the typical
"head bobble" pitch.

Rogue's available class-exclusive* Around View® Monitor (AVM) with Moving
Object Detection (MOD) system features four small superwide-angle cameras
mounted on the front, side and rear of the vehicle that provide a "bird's eye"
virtual 360 degree view of objects around the vehicle. It provides additional
selectable split-screen close-ups of the front, rear and curb views, helping
the driver maneuver the car in or out of tight spots.

Moving Object Detection builds on the capabilities of the AVM system, helping
enhance the driver's situational awareness by providing visual and audible
warnings (front, side or back range object detection) if the system detects
moving objects (such as another vehicle) within the displayed image in
situations such as pulling out of a parking space. Using sophisticated image
processing technology, the system detects moving objects within the "top view"
(when the vehicle is in Park). When starting off or backing up, it detects
moving objects crossing within the front or rear views, respectively.

Other available Rogue Safety Shield-inspired technologies include Blind Spot
Warning (BSW), Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Forward Collision Warning
(FCW).
