D40 ANCAP Crash Test

Model History and Safety Features

The tested model of Nissan Navara D40 was introduced in Australia in 2012. This ANCAP 4-star rating currently only applies to 4 cylinder diesel Dual Cab 4×4 variants built from late 2011#, when safety upgrades were introduced.

Dual front airbags, antilock brakes (ABS) and electronic stability control (ESC) are standard on the D40 Dual Cab.

Electronic brake distribution (EBD), side airbags and headprotecting side curtains are optional and are recommended by ANCAP but do not change the star rating. An advanced seat belt reminder is fitted to the driver seat.

Pretensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash. A three point seat belt is fitted to the centre rear seat.

This provides better protection than a two point (lap) seat belt.

Occupant Protection: 4 Stars

The Navara scored 10.50 out of 16 in the offset crash test. The passenger compartment held its shape well. Protection from serious leg injury was marginal for the driver.

The vehicle was awarded a default score of 16 out of 16 in the side impact crash test.

chest 2.94 pts, upper legs 2 pts, lower legs 1.56 pts. The passenger compartment held its shape well in the offset crash test. The clutch pedal moved rearwards by 62 mm and upwards 3 mm. The steering wheel hub moved 17 mm rearward, 32 mm upward and 39 mm sideways.

The front (A) pillar moved 17 mm rearwards. All doors remained closed during the crash. After the crash all doors could be opened with normal effort.

The airbag cushioned the head of the driver and contact was stable. Steering column and ignition switch components were a potential source of injury for the driver’s knees. The passenger’s head was cushioned by the airbag.

Side Impact Crash Test

Body region scores out of 4 points each . Head 4 pts, chest

4 pts, abdomen 4 pts, pelvis 4 pts. The side impact test normally used by ANCAP simulates a small car striking the driver’s door of the vehicle under test. It is based on a regulation test but the regulation does not apply to vehicles with a high seat height like the Navara.

Experience shows that such vehicles can be expected to perform well in this test so ANCAP has decided to award full score for these vehicles instead of conducting a crash test. No pole test was conducted
