FORD FOCUS EARNS TOP SAFETY RATINGS FROM NHTSA

ford-focus-2012 newThe 2014 Ford Focus maintains top marks in the federal government’s new car safety rating program. Both sedan and hatchback Focus models, as well as Focus Electric all earned a five-star overall vehicle score in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s New Car Assessment Program. Ford’s AdvanceTrac® electronic stability control and anti-lock brake system, standard across the Focus range, constantly monitors road conditions and driver response, adjusting engine power and applying ABS to help keep wheels firmly planted.
Front and side airbags tailor deployment to vehicle occupants in the event of a crash. The driver’s airbag uses a curve-shaped tether system that pulls in the lower section to help lessen the impact of the airbag in a frontal crash. Side airbags feature shoulder vents that stay open and reduce pressure on smaller occupants. Focus remains the world’s top-selling vehicle nameplate through the first three quarters of 2013, based on Ford analysis of the latest Polk global vehicle registration data.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), established in 1970, is an agency of the Executive Branch of the U.S. government, part of the Department of Transportation. It describes its mission as “Save Lives, Preven Injuries, Reduce vehicle-related crashes”.
