ANCAP SAFETY is taking a number of precautions to assist in minimising effects on the community. These measures include remote working arrangements for staff and restricted physical contact with the community, our members and stakeholders. These arrangements are not expected to adversely affect the important service we provide to Australian & New Zealand consumers, and ANCAP safety rating information can continue to be accessed via our website. Safety is our priority. Please stay safe.

This rating applies to 5.0 litre V8 & 2.3 litre EcoBoost Fastback variants.

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).

Advanced seat belt reminders are fitted to both front seats but not the rear.
