Ford were allowed a second frontal retest for the Mondeo to check the upgraded restraint systems, steering column and the knee protection area. These modifications were incorporated into production from 5 November 2001. The Mondeo performed well but is criticised for an unstable body structure and having relatively high driver and passenger chest loads. But other than this it provides balanced occupant protection for front and side impacts. The child protection was particularly good.
