Ford is celebrating remarkable results for its Ford Focus and Ford Ranger models in the latest round of NCAP safety tests.

Euro NCAP is the foremost European authority on automobile safety, and their awards are a much sought after acknowledgement that vehicles fulfill stringent safety criteria.

Now people looking to lease, finance or purchase a Ford Focus or Ford Ranger can do so in the knowledge the are getting one of Europe’s safest cars.

The Ford Focus ‘Best in Class’

Euro NCAP have awarded the Ford Focus the ‘Best in Class’ award for small family cars.

This follows its record breaking achievements in NCAP testing, where it was awarded a five star Euro NCAP rating and took four Euro NCAP Advanced safety awards.

This was previously unheard of for mass market cars.

Breaking down the ratings, the Ford Focus scored 92% for adult occupant safety and 82% for child occupant safety.

In some child occupancy safety tests, the Ford Focus scored 100%, making it an attractive proposition for families looking to purchase, lease or finance a new car.

Award-winning Ford Focus technologies

The Ford Focus was awarded the Advanced safety awards for its driver alert, forward alert, active city stop and lane keeping aid technologies.

Ford driver alert uses a forward looking camera to monitor driving patterns, keeping an eye out for distinctive signs of driver fatigue, like sudden, exaggerated corrections or drifting out of lane.

If it detects these patterns, then a series of alarms are triggered to alert the driver and urge them to take a rest.

Ford Forward Alert monitors the road ahead, warning the driver of potential hazards and activating an automatic braking assist programme.

Ford Active City Stop is designed to help prevent accidents during urban driving, through pre-charging the brakes if it senses a collision is likely.

It can activate the brakes and reduce speed automatically.

The Ford Lane Keeping aid monitors the lane markings. If it determines that the driver is drifting out of lane, it applies a corrective torque and alerts the driver.

The Ford Ranger is Euro NCAP safest pick-up

The Ford Ranger is now the only pick-up to be awarded a five-star rating by the organisation.

In NCAP’s rigorous testing, the Ford Ranger scored 96% for adult occupant safety, 86% for child occupant safety, 81% for pedestrian safety and 71% for safety assist.

Already popular due to its reputation for reliability and performance, this latest safety accolade adds appeal to those looking to purchase, lease or finance a new pick-up.
