Since 2006, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has been awarding its Top Safety Pick honors. Knowing that consumers want safety, auto manufacturers try hard to get on that list. Lucky for us, that is making cars safer and safer.
For 2013, Ford has an impressive nine cars on the list, including the 2013 Ford Taurus, Escape, and Fusion.
The IIHS puts cars through a rigorous course of crash tests and only those that get the top “good” rating for crash tests to the front, side, rear and roof are Top Safety Picks.
The 2013 Ford Fusion was awarded the IIHS’s new, even higher ranking—a Top Safety Pick+. This means the Fusion did well in a new test called a small overlap front test. This test simulates the car crashing into a tree or pole with the front corner of the car.
Paul Obaugh Ford has all nine of the Ford Top Safety Picks in stock now. If you need safety, stop on by for a test drive.
