The Ford Mustang (FM) was first introduced in Australia and New Zealand in 2015 and awarded a 2 star ANCAP safety rating - see separate rating. This 3 star ANCAP safety rating applies to right-hand-drive Ford Mustang (FN) models, supplied to Australian & New Zealand markets, built from December 2017 when production upgrades and changes to its safety specification were introduced. This rating applies to 5.0 litre V8 & 2.3 litre EcoBoost Fastback variants.
Dual frontal, side chest-protecting and side head-protecting (curtain) airbags are standard, as are knee airbags for the driver and front passenger.
All three grades of autonomous emergency braking (City, Interurban & Vulnerable Road User) are standard, as well as lane keep assist (LKA) with lane departure warning (LDW).
For models built from December 2017 to December 2020, advanced seat belt reminders are fitted to both front seats but not the rear. Advanced seat belt reminders are standard on front and rear seats for vehicles built from January 2021.
