Nissan Safety Shield 360

Nissan is making its comprehensive suite of advanced driver assist technologies standard on several 2021 models, including the Sentra. As part of the Safety Shield 360, the Sentra boasts tech designed to help warn you of dangers and automatically engage the brakes to help minimize an accident (Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection) and point out threatens you can’t see (Blind Spot Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert). You’ll retain a safe lane position with help from Lane Departure Warning and oncoming traffic won’t be blinded by your headlights with High Beam Assist. Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Rear Automatic Braking help safeguard your reverse maneuvers.

More safety systems

But, the Sentra goes further with several other systems such as Rear Door Alert, which reminds you to check the backseat before you exit the vehicle. Ten supplemental airbags and Intelligent Driver Alertness, which monitors your focus behind the wheel, are also standard on the 2021 Sentra.
