2011 Ford Fiesta safest car in its category worldwide
by Chris Hughes
The 2011 Ford Fiesta has now become the first car in its category to earn top crash test ratings in each of the world’s largest auto markets including the United States and China.
The U.S. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety tested the compact car under new testing standards and it was the only car in its class to receive this rating.
Ford points out that underneath the Fiesta is a structure made from high-strength steels engineered to preserve quality and enhance driver and passenger safety. More than 55 percent of Fiesta’s body structure is built from ultra-high-strength steel
Group Vice President of Sustainability, Environment and Safety – Sue Cischke had this to say about the results:
“Ford is committed to safety and to delivering top crash test ratings that customers look to when choosing new vehicles”, “Fiesta is the latest example of that safety commitment, and it shows that a small, fuel-efficient car can deliver top-level safety.”
Congratulations Ford Fiesta.
