The safety specialists at Euro NCAP have recently named the Ford Focus the “Best in Class” small family car, after the model has been tested.
According to Euro NCAP, the new generation of the Ford Focus is the best small family car, and this conclusion has been taken after the vehicle has been crash tested and recognized for its safety technology. The new generation of the Ford Focus has received the maximum five-star rating at the latest Euro NCAP tests.
“This award has special meaning because designing and building the safest vehicles possible is a core value at Ford. The Focus exemplifies our approach to design cars that both help drivers avoid accidents and protect them when one is inevitable”, said the chairman and CEO, Ford of Europe, Stephen Odell.
As a reminder, the new generation of the Ford Focus is coming in the same three body configurations, five-door hatchback, four-door sedan and five-door station wagon, being part of the One Ford strategy. This means that over 80 percent of the components used to make the car are the same for all markets it was sold on. The current generation of the Ford Focus is currently being manufactured in Chongqing, China, Michigan, USA and Saarlouis, Germany.
