The Ford Fiesta was introduced in Australia during 2004.

The Ford Fiesta scored 10.98 out of 16 in the offset crash test. The passenger compartment held its shape well. Protection from serious chest and leg injury was marginal for the driver.

The vehicle scored 13.86 out of 16 in the side impact crash test. There was a moderate risk of serious chest injury for the driver.

Important note: The 1.4 litre European model was tested by EuroNCAP. Australasian specifications may vary and therefore models sold in Australasia might provide different levels of protection to those described on this page. The Fiesta has a 1.6 litre engine in Australia. The external dimensions of the 1.4 litre and 1.6 litre engines are identical.


Safety Feature Summary

The safety feature information below is subject to change without notice. For up to date safety feature specifications for all variants, please see the safety feature table to the right or contact the manufacturer.

Dual front airbags are standard equipment. Side airbags, headprotecting side curtains and ABS brakes are available on some variants. The front seat belt buckles are mounted on the seats and the upper anchorages are adjustable.

These features improve the fit of the seat belt. Pre-tensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash. A three point seat belt is fitted to the centre rear seat. This provides better protection than a two point seat belt.
