The Ford Focus is a great car for Elk Grove, CA area drivers for a number of reasons. It is fuel and cost efficient, comes with a ton of awesome features like SYNC and MyFord Touch systems standardly included, and now, the vehicle has earned another, even more important distinction. The vehicle was recently awarded the highest possible safety designations by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
The widely respected crash safety testing Institute recently tested the Focus, and it performed very admirably in their inspections. Some of the battery of tests the Insurance Institute ran were an overlap frontal crash test, side impact test, rollover, and a check of the seats and restraints. The Focus earned a Top Safety Pick+ designation, with the extra + coming from its solid performance in the overlap test.
The model also earned a Five Star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, meaning its achieved two of the auto industry's highest awards for safety. However, all of this isn't necessarily a surprise to us here at Elk Grove Ford, as we know almost better than anyone that Ford strives to keep drivers safe, confident, and protected in every one of their models.
One of the reasons the Focus is so incredibly safe is because Ford employed boron steel in its construction, which flexes slightly on impact to direct the force of the crash from passengers.
