The 2017 Ford Fusion has a lot to offer, from the standout style to the advanced technology to the comfort and practicality. And now it can add another recommendation to the list – being named a Top Safety Pick+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Earning this honor is no small feat. To be an IIHS Top Safety Pick+, a vehicle needs to earn the agency’s top rating – “good” – in all five crashworthiness tests, as well as earn an “advanced” or “superior” rating for an available front crash prevention system. But the 2017 Ford Fusion passed with flying colors.

The new Ford Fusion has a modified front-end structure as well as an available active braking system that both helped the model excel in the crashworthiness tests. And the updated front crash prevention system improved its rating to “superior,” and includes features like the previously mentioned active braking system, and a forward collision warning. In addition to the crash safety features, the 2017 Ford Fusion keeps drivers and passengers safe in other ways as well. Advanced technology like a pedestrian detection system, a hands-free parallel parking capability, a Blind Spot Information System, and lane-keeping assist all help prevent collisions in the first place, so hopefully, those crashworthiness tests will never need to pay off in a real situation.
