This Ford Sedan is Prepared for the Accident You Didn't Expect

They call them "car accidents" because nobody means for them to happen -- nobody comes to Hines Park Collision because they wanted to -- but they can be devastating all the same. An accident can occur when you least expect it, so why not drive a car that is always prepared?

The 2017 Ford Fusion just earned a Top Safety Pick+ from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

The IIHS cites the newly redesigned Fusion's improved front-end structure for its exceptional performance in the notorious small-overlap test. This relatively new front-crash test aligns only 25 percent of a vehicle's hood with the edge of a barrier to simulate the type of accident that occurs when your car clips an oncoming vehicle drifting over the line, or a partial strike on a tree or pole. Because it focuses the impact on such a small portion of the vehicle, it bypasses the safety systems and crumple-zones of many vehicles.

This year, however, the Ford Fusion aced the test, as well as four other crash tests. It earned the "plus" designation for its superior new front crash prevention system, which is available with pedestrian detection, and can bring the vehicle to a complete stop from 25mph to avoid a collision without any action taken on the part of the driver.

That means even if incapacitated or distracted, your new Fusion can stop the car for you.
