Safety is paramount when deciding on a new car, especially if you’ve got kids or teen drivers in the family – which is why you should consider a pre-owned 2015 Ford Fusion for your next vehicle. It received a five out five-star rating for overall crash protection and a “Good” rating (the highest possible rating) from the IIHS in roof strength, side-impact, and moderate-overlap frontal-offset crash tests.
The Fusion is fitted with front-seat side airbags, side curtain airbags, and front knee airbags. Traction and stability control, along with antilock disc brakes ensure that you and your car will stay on the road should you encounter any inclement weather conditions. In addition to navigation and device pairing, the Ford SYNC system comes with some wonderful high-tech safety features as well. If a crash occurs, it will automatically dial emergency services using a compatible cell phone.
An Edmunds review comments that parents of teen drivers will love the MyKey feature, which allows you to set a speed limit when the car is in use. Consumers have the option to upgrade to other safety equipment, including lane-keep assist, rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot monitoring, inflatable rear seatbelts, and frontal collision warning with brake priming. If you find yourself making long late night drives, you might consider the drowsiness detection and lane-departure warning feature, which vibrates the steering wheel and sends an audio alert if you begin drifting into the wrong lane.
