Both the 2013 and 2014 Ford Focus sedan and hatchback, along with the 2013 Ford Focus Electric, earned Five-Star Overall Vehicle Scores from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
If there is any source to trust, it is definitely the highest federal government safety rating.
If you still aren’t convinced, however, you will be now.
The 2013 Ford Focus also earned the highest possible safety rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety – Top Safety Pick+.
The IIHS tests through four evaluations in which vehicles must earn “good” ratings. These evaluations include a moderate overlap frontal crash, rollover, seats/head restraints and side impact.
Vehicles must earn “good” or “acceptable” ratings on a fifth test – the small overlap frontal crash.
Bypassing the “poor” and “marginal” ratings, the 2013 Ford Focus earned a “good” rating for the first four evaluations and an “acceptable” rating for the fifth.
And, the Focus is one of just six small cars to earn this rating.
The Ford Focus is a prime example of the vehicle safety commitment made by Ford.
