Fusion and Fusion Hybrid are the Safest Picks

The Fusion and Fusion Hybrid, available at Gene Latta Ford, were awarded five-star safety ratings from the NHTSA and Top Safety Pick+ from IIHS.

Online PR News – 30-January-2013 – HANOVER, Pennsylvania – When searching for a car, there is a long list of features consumers look for like comfort, speed, technology and style. The list goes on and on, but perhaps the most important item consumers should look for is safety. When you shop at Gene Latta Ford (genelatta.com), look no further because the dealership offers the most highly-rated cars, the Ford Fusion and Fusion Hybrid.
The Fusion and Fusion Hybrid have been awarded a five-star Overall Vehicle Score in the New Car Assessment Program testing by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). In addition, the Fusion was also named a Top Safety Pick+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
Why are these cars the safest for customers and their families? The all-new Personal Safety System is the answer. It offers improved seat belt technology and frontal airbags. The system works by using information gathered from a network of components to deploy the airbags in a way that will cause the least amount of injury.
The information comes from sources such as front crash detectors, outboard safety belt switches, driver-seat track positioning and seat weight sensors. Using all of this information, the restraint control module determines precisely when, where and with how much pressure the airbag should deploy. The new airbags also deploy at a lower angle towards the pelvis rather than the face and they determine the pressure based on the size of the person sitting in the seat.
An array of other features that physically help the process of driving and help reduce driver stress are also available on these models. They include blind spot assist, cross-traffic alert, active park assist, lane keeping assist, backup assist, hill start assist and many more. These features create a safer driving experience for all passengers and pedestrians.
“The Fusion and Fusion Hybrid exemplify the new face of Ford vehicles and demonstrate Ford’s commitment to safety in all its vehicles across the globe,” said Steve Kenner, Global Director of the Ford Automotive Safety Office. Ford’s commitment to safety has certainly paid off in both of these models.
