Safety

The Focus received a Good overall rating Ч the highest possible score Ч in the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's frontal-offset crash test. In the side-impact crash test, the coupe received a Good rating, while the sedan scored one notch below with an Acceptable rating.

The Focus comes standard with six airbags, including side curtain airbags, but antilock brakes Ч an important safety feature that's becoming increasingly standard on small affordable cars like the Focus Ч is optional. It's bundled together with an electronic stability system. For the 2010 model year, both of these features become standard.
