2012 Ford Focus CRASH TEST
The rating of the Ford Focus has been upgraded from 2011 to 2012. The car
is unchanged and test results have been carried over from the previous
year. The 2012 rating reflects the performance of the Focus against Euro
NCAP's latest requirements.
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.
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.
The protection provided by the bumper to the legs of a struck pedestrian
was predominantly good. The front edge of the bumper offered good
protection in all areas tested. In most areas likely to be struck by a
child's head the bonnet offered good protection. While protection of an
adult's head was also good in places most areas tested were rated as poor

2013 Ford Focus Manual Review, Walkaround, Exhaust, Test Drive
As a simple, economical, and cheap commuter car, this particular Ford Focus
represents a best in class. It's really hard to find fault in it, as the
known problem areas such as MFT and the 6 speed power shift transmission
are not found on this model. If you are looking to get rid of that 10 year
old economy car, we'd highly recommend something like this.
