Ford Kuga - Crash & Safety Tests 2019

The passenger compartment of the Kuga remained stable in the frontal offset test. Dummy readings indicated good protection of theknees and femurs of the driver and passenger. Ford showed that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of differentsizes and to those sitting in different positions. Protection of the driver's chest and lower leg was rated as marginal. In the full-width rigidbarrier test, protection the driver's chest was again marginal but that of all other critical body areas was good or adequate for both thedriver and rear passenger. In both the side barrier and the more severe side pole tests, protection of all critical body areas was good andthe car scored full points in both of these tests. Tests on the front seats and head restraints demonstrated good protection againstwhiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision. A geometric assessment of the rear seats also indicated good whiplash protection.The standard-fit autonomous emergency braking (AEB) system performed well in tests of its functionality at the low speeds at which manywhiplash injuries occur.
