Engine / Fuel Type

Conventional vehicles

The tested model of Ford Focus was introduced in Australia during 2002. The tested vehicle was fitted with a passenger airbag that is optional on the Australian base model.

Vehicles tested after 1 January 2008 require Electronic Stability Control in order achieve a 5 star rating. This vehicle was tested prior to this date and may or may not meet this new requirement.

The left-hand-drive European model was tested by EuroNCAP. Australasian specifications may vary and therefore models sold in Australasia might provide different levels of protection to those described on this page.

A driver's airbag is standard on all variants. A passenger airbag is optional on the CL variant as part of a safety pack with ABS brakes. Passenger airbags and ABS are standard on all other variants. Side airbags are available on the Ghia variant (not tested). Vehicle stability control is available on higher variants. The front seat belt buckles are mounted on the seats and the upper anchorages are adjustable. These features improve the fit of the seat belt. 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 seat belt.
