Late in the game, the 2014 Ford Focus continues to make waves due to its exceptional safety. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) awarded the 2014 Focus with an Overall Rating of five stars in their New Car Assessment Program, which is the most a car can earn overall by the NHTSA. Of note in this assessment was the stability control and anti-lock braking system, which watches for road conditions and applies subtle engine power adjustments and braking to keep all wheels firmly planted on the ground.
In addition, the 2014 Ford Focus has also earned the “Top Safety Pick” from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). IIHS noted the 2013 addition of a driver knee airbag “designed to minimize knee injuries in frontal crashes.” The Focus is also constructed from high-strength and ultra-high-strength steel which keeps the force of impact away from all occupants in the vehicle.
