Earlier this month, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) named the 2013 Ford Fusion a Top Safety Pick.
In order for a vehicle to become a Top Safety Pick the IIHS puts it through a series of rigorous trials, including offset frontal impact, side impact, dynamic head restraint and roof strength testing. The 2013 Fusion received rating of “Good” in all categories, earning it the IIHS’s prestigious honor.
“The new Fusion is another example of Ford’s commitment to the highest standards of safety and we are proud that IIHS has recognized these efforts,” said Steve Kenner, global director of the Automotive Safety Office.
The 2013 Ford Fusion is equipped with a plethora of innovative safety features and equipment to ensure its drivers are as safe as possible, including Ford’s Personal Safety System, eight standard airbags that take in account the size of the occupant, Blind-Spot Information System (BLIS) with cross-traffic alert, Driver Monitoring, Lane Keeping Assist, Driver Monitoring and Active Park Assist.
