In recent years, Nissan has taken more steps toward making driving easier than any other manufacturer. The steady approach has benefited this automaker, and Nissan understands that small steps are better than no steps at all.
That’s where the Nissan Drive-Assist Display comes in. As you’ll see, it’s amazing what a second screen can do for your focus and attention on the road. Take a moment to find out what the Advanced Drive-Assist® Display does and which Nissan models it is currently available for.
What is Nissan Drive Assist Display?
Your Nissan might already be equipped with an Advanced Drive-Assist® Display. It’s the 4.3-inch LCD screen located in the middle of the instrument cluster, between the RPM and MPH gauges.
You should see the display come to life the moment you turn the key or press the ignition button. A 3D representation of your Nissan will appear on the screen, followed by a variety of information about your vehicle.
This information includes:
- Vehicle settings
- Trip computer information
- Drive system warnings and settings*
- Audio information
- Navigation information*
- Cruise control system information*
- Nissan Intelligent Key® details
- Indicators and warnings
- Tire pressure information*
(Asterisked functions are present only if your Nissan is equipped with applicable features.)
Already that’s a lot of basic information that Nissan has gathered in one place. You can navigate the simple and intuitive menus with just your left thumb and three buttons on the steering wheel.
But then they take it a step further.
If you have your phone connected via Bluetooth®, you’ll also get notifications about your incoming calls and even text messages on the Nissan Drive-Assist Display. If you’re following navigation instructions, those will also show up on the screen in front of you.
So what difference does it make?
The Advanced Drive-Assist® Display helps keep your attention on the road where it belongs. No more turning to look at the center console. No blind reaching for a touchscreen. Just a quick glance downward without ever taking your hands off the steering wheel. The display itself is crystal clear and angled to the optimal reading view.
Which Nissan Models Have the Advanced Drive-Assist® Display?
The Nissan Drive-Assist Display is a small feature that makes a big difference in your safety while driving. It’s another win for Nissan in its commitment to pushing personal mobility forward.

Always remember that just because there’s more information in your reach, it doesn’t give you a free pass to look away from where you’re going. You should always try to access your car’s features after coming to a complete stop.
