Safety

The Focus comes with six airbags, including standard side-impact and side curtain airbags. However, stability control — which the government will mandate on all cars in 2012 — is not even available as an option. Antilock brakes and traction control are available only as options; the Civic and redesigned 2009 Corolla include ABS standard.

As of this writing, the Focus has not been completely crash-tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Frontal impact scores rated a top score of Good, but neither side- nor rear-impact tests have been done.
