Ford Fusion earns top safety award
The 2017 Ford Fusion has earned good ratings in all five crash-worthiness tests resulting in rare Top Safety Pick+ award from U.S. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
A modified front-end structure and an optional new active braking system help the 2017 Ford Fusion qualify for a Top Safety Pick+ award from the U.S. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
Like previous Fusion models, the 2017 car earns good ratings again in the agency’s four other crashworthiness tests – moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraints.
Not only that, the midsize car’s front crash prevention rating improved from basic to superior with the addition of active braking.
In track tests at 12 mph and 25 mph, Fusion avoided collisions. The optional system also includes a forward collision warning component that meets National Highway Traffic Safety Administration criteria.
To qualify for an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety Top Safety Pick+, a vehicle must earn good ratings in all five crashworthiness tests and have an available front crash prevention system that secures it an advanced or superior rating.
