“The new Focus is another example of Ford’s commitment to safety and NHTSA’s NCAP program has recognized this fact,” said Steve Kenner, global director of the Automotive Safety Office. “The Focus is built with technologies from bumper to bumper to help reduce occupant injury risk when a crash is unavoidable.”

The new Focus was designed with next-generation front and side airbag technologies to tailor deployment to individual occupants. It also includes segment-exclusive Safety Canopy curtain airbags.
