Nissan Titan
Front impact: Good
Side Impact: Marginal (with side airbags); Poor (without side airbags)
Whiplash protection: Acceptable
Stability Control: Optional
Top Safety Pick: No

In the Institute's side crash test, the Titan's side-crash protection was rated as "Marginal" even with body-protecting side airbags installed. Without them, performance was "Poor." (The Institute rates crash-test performance on a four-grade scale: Good, Acceptable, Marginal and Poor.)

The Titan's crash protection could be helped by a combination of structural, airbag and door-trim modifications, the Institute said.

"We will continue to review, evaluate and, as necessary, take these results into consideration along with additional outside data," Nissan said in a statement responding to the test results.

In seperate crash tests by the federal government, the Titan earned four out of a possible five stars for side impact-protection.
