The Ford Fiesta was introduced in Australia and New Zealand in 2009. This ANCAP safety rating applies to all variants and all engines built from January 2013 when 7 airbags became standard. It includes several model updates being introduced during 2013.
The left-hand-drive 5 door hatch with 1.25 litre petrol engine was tested by Euro NCAP. ANCAP was provided with information which showed that the Euro NCAP results apply to all Fiesta variants with 7 airbags.
Dual frontal, side chest and side head airbags (curtains) and a driver knee airbag are standard. 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.
