The Ford SZ Territory is available from May 2011. This rating is based on crash tests conducted by ANCAP in 2006 and technical information provided about the updated model. The SZ Territory can be expected to provide better chest protection than the 2006 model. It also has improved knee protection due to a driver knee airbag.
Dual front airbags, head-protecting side curtains and a driver knee airbag are standard equipment. Antilock brakes (ABS), electronic brake distribution (EBD) and electronic stability control (ESC) are also standard. Advanced seat belt reminders are fitted to both front seats. A reversing camera is available on some variants. Pretensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash. A three point seat belt is fitted to the centre rear seat. This provides better protection than a two point (lap) seat belt.
