For safety, it also gets four airbags, ABS with EBD and Brake Assist (HBA), Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC), Traction Control System (TCS), Hill Start Assist (HSA). Additionally, its cousin Nissan Magnite also gets a Latin NCAP crash rating of 4-stars so it is safer to say that the Kiger also packs in the same since they both share the same CMF-A platform.
