2017 Ford Fusion Safety Ratings
The 2017 Ford Fusion earned a Top Safety Pick+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), and there’s no wonder why. In order for a vehicle to earn the “plus” rating, it must pass each of the five crashworthy assessments from the IIHS and earn the highest score of “good”. This model comes fully-loaded, with an array of industry-leading safety features.[iii]
The first thing we noticed about the 2017 Ford Fusion was the pedestrian detection feature. The Ford Fusion uses Pre-Collision assist to detect stopped or moving vehicles, as well as pedestrians with advanced radar and camera sensors.
The Fusion also has an available Lane-Keeping System. While driving, if you begin to veer out of your current lane without a designated lane departure the system will alert you accordingly, so that you can reposition yourself safely. The Fusion has a camera behind the windshield that continuously scans the road lane markings to track your vehicle positon and effectively detect if you begin to exit the lane unintentionally.[iv]
The 2017 Ford Fusion is undoubtedly desirable, for many reasons. If you are intrigued and would like to know more, contact Meadowvale Ford today.
