The Ford Fusion recently won the Top Safety Pick award from the IIHS. Keystone Ford also announces details about the vehicle's crash test ratings.

We're very proud that the 2017 Ford Fusion has earned this recognition as a Top Safety Pick with the IIHS," said Clayton Black, general manager at Keystone Ford.

Keystone Ford is proud to announce the results of safety tests on the 2017 Ford Fusion. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) awarded the vehicle good ratings in all five types of crashworthy tests in addition to the Top Safety Pick Award.

All previous model years of the Ford Fusion have been noted for their safety features, particularly with regard to crashworthiness. The 2017 model's front crash prevention system is optionally equipped with a new active braking system, which helped the vehicle to earn a superior rating from the IIHS. Compared to previous model years, the addition of active braking improved the midsize car's crash prevention rating from basic to superior. Available with a 2.7-liter EcoBoost engine and LED lighting, the 2017 model is noteworthy for a variety of new features. The hybrid version gets over 40 miles per gallon.

"We're very proud that the 2017 Ford Fusion has earned this recognition as a Top Safety Pick with the IIHS," said Clayton Black, general manager at Keystone Ford. "We believe in providing tough, reliable vehicles for our customers, but some of the most important features are the ones we hope you never need to use. The safety features that make all the difference in an accident are the ones that protect your passengers and family."

The car successfully avoided collisions in IIHS track test at 12 and 25 mph. The crash tests categories wherein the vehicle earned a good rating include head restraints, moderate overlap front, small overlap front, side and roof strength. In order to secure the IIHS Top Safety Pick award, a model needs to earn good ratings in all types of crashworthiness testing, and the front crash prevention system must also earn an advanced or superior rating. Forward collision warning features are also available for the 2017 model. In addition to the IIHS, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has also recognized the exceptional standards of safety met by this mid-size sedan.

Founded in 1959, the IIHS is an independent, non-profit educational and scientific organization dedicated to improving national safety by reducing the injuries, death and property damage caused by crashes. Awards like the Top Safety Pick are designed to educate consumers and encourage manufacturers to produce safer vehicles.
