With Ford Australia getting close to the release of the Mondeo in this country the results from the latest round of Euro NCAP safety testing will be music to Ford executive ears with their new Mondeo earning a 5-star rating for adult occupant protection.
The test result for Mondeo was one of the top 10 ever recorded in the respected independent crash testing evaluations.
This achievement sees the Mondeo join three other Ford models - Focus, Galaxy and S-MAX ? on the Euro NCAP top 10 list, reinforcing Ford of Europe's position as the manufacturer with the highest number of vehicles in the top 10 for adult occupant protection.
Ford's Mondeo scored 35 points for adult occupant protection to win its 5-star rating and also scored well with a 4-star rating awarded for child occupant protection. The pedestrian protection category saw the Mondeo achieve a 2-star rating.
?With each new model, our quest is for the ultimate safety performance. This latest Euro NCAP 5-star rating for the new Mondeo is a further validation of our holistic approach to engineering safety into Ford vehicles, and the strength of our Ford Intelligent Protection System,? said Gisbert Gaeb, Manager, Vehicle Safety, Ford of Europe.
Ford claim that their string of Euro NCAP 5-star ratings reflects a sustained, holistic engineering approach to safety engineering.
We just think it will be great news for Ford Australia and their dealer network when the new Mondeo goes on sale and make it even easier to sell what is already a very accomplished car.
