Euro NCAP | Ford Focus | 2011 | ESC test

Euro NCAP carried out "sine-with-dwell" tests according to the ESC GTR global technical regulation, which is based on the US regulation FMVSS126. For cars that allowed the ESC system to be switched off, tests were carried out with ESC ON and OFF. Cars were tested by undergoing multiple runs, sometimes as much as 60 per car, each time increasing the steering angle and input. The clip shows the 'first ESC off test' where the car span out. The 'ESC on test' is the one with the same steering input.

Crash Test Global Ncap India: Hyundai i10, VW Polo, Tata Nano, Ford Figo - 0 Stars
The first-ever independent crash tests of some of India's popular and important small cars have shown a high-risk of life threatening injuries in road crashes. All the cars selected by Global NCAP for testing in a frontal impact at 64km/h received zero-star adult protection ratings. The models tested included India's best-selling car, the Suzuki-Maruti Alto 800. The Tata Nano, Ford Figo, Hyundai i10 and Volkswagen Polo also underwent the safety assessment. Combined sales of these five cars account for around 20% of all the new cars sold in India last year. Global NCAP chose the entry-level version of each model and as a result none were fitted with air bags as standard. The results highlight major differences in the structural integrity of the vehicles tested. Max Mosley, Chairman of Global NCAP, said: "India is now a major global market and production centre for small cars, so it's worrying to see levels of safety that are 20 years behind the five-star standards now common in Europe and North America. Poor structural integrity and the absence of airbags are putting the lives of Indian consumers at risk. They have a right to know how safe their vehicles are and to expect the same basic levels of safety as standard as customers in other part of the world." In the Suzuki-Maruti Alto 800, the Tata Nano and the Hyundai i10, the vehicle structures proved inadequate and collapsed to varying degrees, resulting in high risks of life-threatening injuries to the occupants. The extent of the structural weaknesses in these models were such that fitting airbags would not be effective in reducing the risk of serious injury. The Ford Figo and Volkswagen Polo had structures that remained stable -- and, therefore, with airbags fitted, protection for the driver and front passenger would be much improved. Coinciding with the Global NCAP tests, Volkswagen has decided to withdraw the non-airbag version of the Polo from sale in India. Because of this, Global NCAP agreed to a request from VW to assess a version of the Polo that has two airbags fitted as standard as from now. Other manufacturers had the same opportunity. The protection proved much better and this airbag-equipped model received a four-star rating for adult occupant protection. Consumers are encouraged to check which version of the Polo they buy. - See more at: http://www.globalncap.org/crash-tests-show-indias-cars-are-unsafe/#sthash.W EEJ0RJ8.dpuf ►THANKS for taking the time to visit, I hope you SUBSCRIBE and enjoy the upcoming videos!

Electronic Stability Control (ESC) Revealed
The federal government estimates this new technology will save more lives than the airbag! ESC is so efficient in keeping your car on the road that Farmers Insurance even gives a discount on your auto policy if it is installed on your vehicle!





EN | Mahindra XUV500 with Bosch electronic stability program (ESP®)
According to the UN, worldwide 1.3 million people die in traffic accidents each year and 50 million are injured. Within ten years, the number of annual road deaths could rise to 1.9 million -- nearly 50% rise. ESP® (electronic stability program) is the best active safety system a car can have. Global studies have proven that ESP® could prevent up to 80% of skidding accidents.

EuroNCAP-Crashtests: BMW X1, Dacia Duster, Nissan Juke und mehr
http://www.auto-news.de Die EuroNCAP-Experten haben fünf neue Crashtests durchgeführt. Geprüft wurden der BMW X1, der Dacia Duster, der Mitsubishi ASX, das Elektroauto Mitsubishi i-MiEV und der Nissan Juke. Drei Kandidaten erhielten die Maximalwertung von fünf Sternen, die übrigen zwei nur drei beziehungsweise vier. Die Sternewertung ist das Gesamtresultat eines Tests, darüber hinaus gibt es Teilergebnisse, die in Prozentwerten angegeben werden. Die Disziplinen heißen Sicherheit der Frontinsassen -- beim Frontalaufprall, Seitenaufprall einer Barriere, eines Pfahls und Heckaufprall --, Sicherheit von Kindern im Fond, Sicherheit von Fußgängern bei einem Aufprall auf die Fronthaube und Ausstattung mit Sicherheitssystemen wie ESP.

What happens to a Lamborghini Gallardo when you switch traction control off?
Is it wise to turn off the ESP stability control? Steve Sutcliffe proves even a Lamborghini Gallardo can spin easily.

2011 Ford Focus EuroNCAP Crash Tests (Frontal Offset, Side, & Pole)
Adult occupant The passenger compartment of the new Focus remained stable in the frontal impact. Dummy readings indicated good protection of all body regions for the front passenger, and for all body regions except the lower legs of the driver, protection of which was adequate. Ford demonstrated that a similar level of protection would be provided to the knees and femurs of occupants of diiferent sizes and to those sat in different seating positions. Protection of the pelvis was adequate in the side barrier test and was good for all other body regions. In the more severe side pole test, chest protection was rated as marginal but was otherwise good or adequate. The seat and head restraint provided good protection against whiplash injuries in a rear impact. Child occupant The Focus scored the maximum points available for the protection of the 3 year child in the frontal and side impact tests, and lost only a fraction of a point for the 18 month infant. A switch is available as an option which disables the passenger airbag, allowing a rearward facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. The test cars were not equipped with the switch and no assessment was done. Labels warning of using a rearward-facing child restraint in that seating position without first disabling the airbag were not available in all European languages.

2015 Subaru WRX vs 2014 Ford Focus ST! Head 2 Head Ep. 50
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman gets his hands on the all-new, 2015 Subaru WRX, as well as one of Motor Trend's favorite pocket rockets, the Ford Focus ST. Each car costs about $30,000, sports a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with similar power outputs, and features a 6-speed manual transmission. The Subaru of course features a sporty version of the brand's "symmetrical AWD" while the Focus makes due with just the front wheels driven. However, since it first appeared, the Focus ST has wowed the Motor Trend staff with ability to dance around corners and, generally, not drive and feel like a front-wheel driver. We like the Focus ST so much that we invited it to last year's Best Driver's Car. But does the Ford have what it takes to beat the latest street-tamed rally baby from Subaru? You're going to have to watch and find out. Head 2 Head appears every other Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel. http://www.youtube.com/motortrend Subscribe now to make sure you're in on all the action! http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=motortrend Facebook - http://facebook.com/motortrendmag Twitter - http://twitter.com/motortrend Google+ - https://plus.google.com/1018679678590...

Control de estabilidad E.S.P
El control de estabilidad es un elemento de seguridad activa del automóvil que actúa frenando individualmente las ruedas en situaciones de riesgo para evitar derrapes, tanto sobrevirajes, como subvirajes. El control de estabilidad centraliza las funciones de los sistemas ABS, EBD y de control de tracción. El control de estabilidad fue desarrollado por Bosch en 1995, en cooperación con Mercedes-Benz y fue introducido al mercado en el Mercedes-Benz Clase S bajo la denominación comercial Elektronisches Stabilitätsprogramm (en alemán "Programa Electrónico de Estabilidad", abreviado ESP). El ESP recibe otros nombres, según los fabricantes de vehículos en los que se monte, tales como Vehicle Dynamic Control ("control dinámico del vehículo", VDC), Dynamic Stability Control ("control dinámico de establidad", DSC), Electronic Stability Control ("control electrónico de establidad", ESC) y Vehicle Stability Control ("control de establidad del vehículo", VSC), si bien su funcionamiento es el mismo
