After going through one of the most challenging crash test gauntlets in the industry, the Ford C-MAX Hybrid has been named a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) for the second year in a row. With this award, the compact hybrid illustrates that it is not impossible to find a car that has both great fuel economy and safety.
“Ford takes the safety of our customers very seriously,” said Steve Kenner, global director of Ford Automotive Safety Office. “We are proud C-MAX Hybrid has achieved a Top Safety Pick from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.”
The C-MAX Hybrid received this honor after receiving the IIHS’ highest possible rating of “good” in moderate overlap front, side, head restraint, and seating crash tests. With standard safety features that include MyKey, AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control, a multitude of both driver and passenger airbags, SOS Post Crash Alert, and a tire pressure monitoring system, it’s easy to see why this hybrid is so safe. Add the available driver-assist features, which include a rearview camera and active park assist, and the C-MAX Hybrid is a force to be reckoned with.
