Ford's Flex, Fusion, Lincoln MKZ and MKT, Mercury Milan earn top safety award



Ford said today that five more of its 2010 models have earned top safety pick awards from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

The models include the Ford Flex, Ford Fusion, Lincoln MKZ, Lincoln MKT and Mercury Milan. Ford said all of those models previously earned top possible scores for occupant protection in IIHS’s front, side and rear tests, but had to pass IIHS’s new rollover test to maintain the rating.

Vehicles also must offer electronic stability control to be eligible for a top safety pick.

The Insurance Institute also said today it is giving its top safety pick award to the 2010 Audi A4 and Q5, Hyundai Tucsonand Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen.

Ford now has 11 IIHS top safety pick ratings for 2010 model vehicles if Volvo, a brand Ford is in the process of selling, is included. That gives Ford more than any other manufacturer, the institute said.

IIHS is an independent, nonprofit, scientific and educational organization dedicated to reducing the losses — deaths, injuries and property damage — from crashes on the nation's highways.
