The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has given the 2021 Nissan Altima, 2021 Toyota Sienna and 2021 Acura TLX the Top Safety Pick+ award, thus giving the sedans and the minivan its top safety blessing for the new year. The Altima thus has been given either the TSP (Top Safety Pick) or TSP+ designation every year since 2013. The Sienna becomes the second 2021 minivan, after the Honda Odyssey, to earn the award. Revisions made to the design of the TLX for 2021 helped it improve from its previous designation of Top Safety Pick.
