Ford Mustang Euro NCAP crash test results are in and they are rather disappointing. The Mustang received just 2-stars in Euro NCAP crash tests making it one of the worst rated cars in its class.
According to the road safety agency, the Mustang fared terribly at frontal offset, full-frontal and side impact tests. In the case of frontal offset crash test, the driver and passenger side airbags “inflated insufficiently”, while in side impact tests the curtain airbag failed to provide enough cushioning. The results for the full-frontal crash test showed the seat belt pre-tensioners and load limiters weren’t on par with the set standards.
Ford Mustang Euro NCAP crash test results also showed that the American sports car fared less when it came to occupant safety compared to its rivals. Child safety was also compromised in some cases, especially in side impact tests.
Now that the results are out, it’s clear that the Mustang was designed according to American safety standards where it managed to score 5-stars.
