Ford Kuga

The diesel left-hand-drive European model was tested by Euro NCAP. ANCAP was provided with technical information which showed that all Australasian variants have comparable occupant protection.

The tested model of Ford Kuga was introduced in Australia and New Zealand in late 2011. ANCAP has been informed that a small number of Kugas imported into New Zealand do not have side curtain airbags and so are not eligible for a 5-star rating. The affected vehicles are badged "Zetec". All "Trend" and "Titanium" variants have side curtains and a 5-star rating. Dual front airbags, side airbags and head-protecting side curtains are standard equipment. Antilock brakes (ABS), electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD) and electronic stability control (ESC) are also standard. Intelligent seat belt reminders are fitted to both front seats. Pretensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash.

5 stars. The Kuga scored 12.69 out of 16 in the offset crash test. The passenger compartment held its shape well. Protection from serious leg injury was marginal for the driver. The vehicle scored 16 out of 16 in the side impact crash test and a further two points in the pole test.
