The new generation of the Ford Focus has been recently given a five-star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
According to the North American based automaker, the 2013 Ford Focus has recently received a five-star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) on the Overall Vehicle Score in the New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) testing. The tests now include a front and side impact crash tests and a resistance to rollover.
“The new Focus is another example of Ford’s commitment to safety and NHTSA’s NCAP program has recognized this fact. The Focus is built with technologies from bumper to bumper to help reduce occupant injury risk when a crash is unavoidable”, said the Automotive Safety Office global director, Steve Kenner.
The 2013 Ford Focus is coming with the next generation of the front and side airbag technologies and it also has the Safety Canopy curtain airbags. The new Ford Focus is a global car and the company had to engineer the body structure and occupant protection for a range of crash and loading possibilities, not just for those applied by the NHTSA, and this is translated into safety in everyday use.
