Eddins Ford Offers IIHS Top Safety Pick, Ford Fusion

Eddins Ford in the Charlottesville, VA area is offering the 2013 Ford Fusion, recently named the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety Top Safety Pick for 2012.

Online PR News – 07-December-2012 – Charlottesville, VA – As 2012 comes to a close, the time came for the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety to make its choice for vehicles that would take the top prize, Top Safety Pick of 2012. At the end of the race, the top choice was the 2013 Ford Fusion. This means that the Ford Fusion achieved “good” ratings in a wide variety of tests performed by the IIHS to test the vehicles safety.

In order to test the safety of the vehicles, the IIHS runs a series of tests to determine if the vehicle is truly safe for consumers. The first of these tests comes from a vehicle’s ability to protect the driver and passengers from a frontal collision. The next score is determined by the car’s performance during a side impact collision. Vehicles are also tested on the safety of the passengers during a rear collision. Finally, vehicles are scored on the ability to withstand pressure to the roof, simulating rollover after an accident.

For all of these tests, the 2013 Ford Fusion received top ratings, performing well against all types of collisions. This is a slight improvement over previous years, where the Fusion performed well, but by comparison, the safety features of the new Fusion protect drivers against a greater variety of collisions and accidents. Some of these features include four-wheel anti-lock brakes, front and side impact airbags for both driver and passenger, and a large variety of other features to ensure the vehicle is running properly and ensure a safe arrival, wherever the destination.

Eddins Ford is proud to carry this vehicle and is confident in allowing a driver to pull away with peace of mind. With a wide variety of styles and models, the friendly dealers at Eddins Ford can help find the perfect Fusion to fit any budget and needs. Financing options are also available to allow customers to drive away in the vehicle of their dreams.
