The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recently gave the 2014 Ford Focus top safety ratings. The Ford Focus is no stranger to high safety ratings from the NHTSA, since it was just maintaining its status at the top. The federal government put together a new car safety rating program, which the Ford Focus, both the sedan and hatchback models, as well as the Ford Focus Electric, continued to earn a 5 star rating for their overall vehicle score.
So what exactly makes the 2014 Ford Focus so safe?
The Ford’s AdvanceTrac® electronic stability control and anit-lock brake system, which is standard in the Focus across the board, is the main reason for such a high safety rating. It is constantly keeping track of the road conditions and how the driver responds to those conditions, which in turn it will adjust itself to go along with the driver. Sounds pretty cool to us!
