Ford Mustang gets 2 stars at the Euro NCAP Safety Score

The punishing Euro NCAP tests showed up major issues with airbags not protecting occupants properly, rear passengers slipping beneath seat belts and a lack of active safety technology like autonomous braking systems.

In the frontal offset impact test, neither of the front airbags inflated enough to fully protect the occupants, and in the side impact test the ‘10-year-old’ dummy’s head actually squashed right through the under-inflated curtain airbag and hit the door trim.

Thatcham Research’s Director of Research, Matthew Avery,said that the tests results “makes it unsuitable for carrying rear passengers.”

“On top this, it does not have basic life-saving technology like Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) that is available even on the Ford Fiesta, and the recently launched Ford Edge,” he said.
