Ford build safest supermini, the Ford Fusion

The Telegraph
(Filed: 06/03/2003)

Car giant Ford has consolidated its position at the top of the supermini safety league, new figures from the Consumers' Association showed today.


New vehicle safety tests by the association's Which? magazine have put the Ford Fusion 1.6-litre in first place for safety among superminis, pushing the Ford Fiesta into second place.

The Lexus LS430 4.3-litre moved into joint top in the luxury car safety table.

Which? looked at nearly 60 aspects of a vehicle's design in the latest batch of tests, in which 12 cars were investigated.

Each vehicle was given a score based on how important its design features were for safety and on how well each would perform in a crash.

The Ford Fusion got 10 points, edging it ahead of the Ford Fiesta 1.4-litre with 9.5. The Lexus LS430 got 13 points, putting it level with the Volvo S80 2.4-litre in the luxury car sector.

My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.

My next Ford.....
