COPENHAGEN, Denmark – The new Ford Focus has been given a special Award of Honour by the Danish Car of the Year jury for bringing advanced safety technologies to the mass market.
Focus finished third in the Danish Car of the Year award, behind the Opel Ampera and BMW 1-Series, but the jury felt it should go further and reward the Focus for its range of new technologies, which includes features such as Lane Keeping Aid, Lane Departure Warning, Active City Stop, Driver Alert, Blind Spot Information System and Traffic Sign Recognition.
The Award of Honour follows hot on the heels of Euro NCAP awarding the Focus four advanced rewards for its intelligent safety systems late last year.
Focus doesn’t just rely on intelligent safety systems to keep its occupants safe though, its construction is also designed to provide maximum safety. This was confirmed when it was awarded the maximum five stars in Euro NCAP crash-tests.
