Consumer Guide



The 2012 Fusion isn't the high achiever in this class for safety, but it's rated pretty well for occupant protection and has an impressive list of features.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gives it a Top Safety Pick honor, with top scores in all tests, but its federal NCAP scores include a three-star rating for frontal impact; it gets a more respectable four stars in side impact, as well as overall.

A rearview camera system and active blind-spot monitor system are available on the 2012 Fusion. Other standard safety features include dual front, side and curtain airbags; anti-lock brakes, traction and stability control; and active headrests.

 

 

Conclusion

The 2012 Ford Fusion has a very respectable, but not class-leading, set of crash-test ratings.

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.
