SAFETY | 9 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

'Good,' all categories; Top Safety Pick
IIHS

Four stars overall, four stars frontal; five stars side
NHTSA




The 2012 Ford Focus was developed as a world car—and to get top crash-test results in each market. And while it missed a perfect five-star rating in federal NCAP tests (it gets a mix of four- and five-star ratings), it did achieve top scores all around from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), as well as the group's Top Safety Pick status.

All the expected safety features are here, including front, side, and Safety Canopy curtain bags, plus standard electronic stability control and anti-lock braking. Additionally, a torque vectoring control system helps provide balanced power delivery coming out of corners.

Despite the somewhat curvier sheetmetal, compared to some other compact models, the 2012 Focus has quite impressive outward visibility; but for those who want it, a rear-view camera is available on upper trims.

Conclusion

A stout new global structure and full set of safety equipment provides excellent occupant protection.

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.
