IIHS and the Ford Escape

The IIHS is an organization that was put together to review and determine the safety of various vehicles on the road for the betterment of the driving public. The Ford Escape, like most other vehicles, passes through rigorous IIHS testing and at the end, is given a grade ranging from poor at the low end of the spectrum to good at the high end.

A number of different aspects are taken into consideration throughout the testing, with specifics like moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraints and seats standing out. If you're curious to see how the 2019 Ford Escape performed in these sections, take a brief moment to consider the chart below:

  • Reverse Perpendicular Parking: Another park assist feature designed to help you ease into tight spots.
  • Side Sensing System: This system gives out an audible warning if you're getting too close to a vehicle or object.
