While the Mustang gets a 72 per cent rating for adult occupant protection - not particularly impressive by current standards – the real cause for concern regards crash protection for child occupants, plus the muscle car’s lack of safety equipment. Now, interestingly, the same 2017 Ford Mustang has scored good safety rating in the US crash test performed by safety bodies like the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). In fact, NHTSA gave the Mustang a 5-star rating in every aspect, including roll-over testing - an American standard not assessed in Europe. What is also worth mentioning here is the Euro-spec Ford Mustang also misses out on a few features like - Forward Collision Warning, a system, which is fitted to models sold in the US. All that said we do hope that Ford takes all this into consideration..
