Ford Fiesta gains maximum 5 star safety rating & what it means
15 September 2017
The Safety Report
The new Fiesta received an overall 5 star rating by Euro NCAP, meaning the car has good practices in place to minimise potential injuries and accidents. By getting this rating, the car has been proved to utilise good features that lower whiplash, car-to-car-side impact, and frontal impact. These features were shown to be positive in the crash test as the Fiesta was given 64% in pedestrian protection, due to the safe build and shape of the framework. The report also found 84% ‘good’ in child occupancy safety, and 87% ‘good’ in adult occupancy safety. As “The latest Euro NCAP safety standards are more stringent than ever, with new emphasis place on technologies that can help drivers avoid accidents” (Ford Vice President, Joe Bakaj), the Fiesta demonstrates it earns its 5 star rating after receiving top rankings for each category tested.
