Via @carthrottlenews - The Ford Mustang has been given a totally unexpected two-star safety rating by Euro NCAP. It’s the first car from a major manufacturer to score so low for almost a decade, and it’s not ideal for something that’s not that likely to make it to the end of its life without being crashed at least once. - 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. - For comparison, the Dacia Sandero scored four of out five stars. In 2013. - 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, even went as far as to say that the test result “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. - Ford has countered with assertions that the facelifted model, to be released in Europe later this year, will score higher. The newer model will have pre-collision assist and lane-keeping assist as standard. - If you already own one, though, you might want to avoid driving into anything solid.: HH NEWS MUSTANG 2016 FORD CENf612 Ford Mustang Records Shock Two-Star Euro NCAP Safety Score Via @carthrottlenews - The Ford Mustang has been given a totally unexpected two-star safety rating by Euro NCAP.
