8.0
Safety

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.

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