We’re sure you’ve heard of how efficient and eco-friendly the Ford Fusion Energi is, but would you be surprised to hear that it has also received the highest safety honors from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration? Well, it’s true, and it looks like the American automaker has nailed the perfect combination of efficiency and safety with this addition to its new model lineup.
There aren’t many models that can claim an EPA-estimated 100 MPGe and a Five-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the NHTSA, but the plug-in hybrid earned the highest possible score from the organization, passing the frontal and side-impact crash tests with flying colors. It boasts the Personal Safety System, too, which includes the following advanced features:
- Lane Keeping Assist
- Adaptive Cruise Control
- Rearview Camera
- Hill Start Assist
- Electronic Parking Brake
- Customized airbag deployment
Actually, the entire Fusion family has a great safety track record, as the 2013 edition of the traditionally fueled sedan received NHTSA Five-Star ratings and its hybrid counterpart earned an IIHS Top Safety Pick+ designation.
We’re sure you have other considerations in addition to safety features in your quest for a new car, and the Fusion and other models in the Lindsay Ford of Wheaton lineup have excellent performance, technology, and comfort capabilities as well, and we’d be happy to discuss them with you.
