Consumer Guide



The 2011 Ford Fusion incorporates the latest safety gear and advanced structural engineering to create an incredibly safe sedan, but revised federal safety standards have left some of its scores off the tally sheet.

In 2010 the Fusion achieved top scores in most categories of testing from the federal government: five stars for front impact protection, along with a five-star rating for front side impact, though it earned four out of five stars for rear side-impact protection. This year, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has changed its testing criteria, and as of yet, it hasn't tested the Fusion.

For 2011, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) also has changed its ratings. However, it's already awarded the Fusion its Top Safety Pick award, figuring in the sedan's crash tests and its performance in a roof-crush test.

Standard safety features on the Fusion include dual front, side and curtain airbags; anti-lock brakes, traction and stability control; and active headrests. The Fusion is unique in the family-sedan class with its safety options list, which now includes a rearview camera, as well as blind-spot monitors.


Conclusion

The NHTSA hasn't scored it yet, but the 2011 Ford Fusion has a strong crash-test history and some advanced safety options.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
