Adult occupant

The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of the driver and passenger. Ford showed that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of different statures and to those sat in different positions, whose knees might contact the dashboard in different places. In the side barrier test, protection of all critical body regions was rated as good except for the chest, protection of which was adequate. In the more severe side pole test, protection of the chest was marginal. Tests on the front seats and head restraints, and a geometric assessment of the rear seats, indicated good protection against whiplash injuries for all seating positions. An autonomous emergency braking system is available as an option, and works at low speeds typical of city driving. As it is not standard equipment, it was not included in this assessment.

Child occupant

The front passenger airbag can be deactivated to allow a rearward-facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. Clear information is provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag and the system was rewarded. All of the restraint types for which the car is designed could be properly installed and accommodated in the car except for the universal group II/III restraint which could not be stably installed in the rear centre seating position. The Mondeo lost some points because the universal group 0+/1 seats should not be used in the rear outboard seats if optional seatbelt airbags are fitted.

Pedestrian

The bumper scored maximum points for its protection of pedestrians' legs, and scored maximum points. However, the front edge of the bonnet scored no points, providing poor protection to the pelvis region. Tests on the bonnet surface revealed predominantly good or adequate levels of protection to the head of a struck pedestrian, with poor results recorded only on the stiff windscreen pillars. Ford's autonomous emergency braking system is available as an option and can detect pedestrians as well as other vehicles, helping to avoid or to mitigate injuries to pedestrians and other vulnerable road users. As the system is not standard equipment, it was not included in the assessment.

Safety assist

Electronic stability control is standard equipment on the Mondeo, together with a seatbelt reminder for the front and rear seats. A combined lane departure warning/lane keeping assistance system is an option. It is expected to be fitted to most cars sold so it was included in the assessment and met Euro NCAP's requirements. A camera-based sign recognition system provides information about the relevant speed limit to the driver who can then set the speed limiter appropriately. An autonomous emergency braking system is available that works from low, city-type speeds to the higher speeds typical of open-road driving. The system is not expected to meet fitment requirements so it was not included in the assessment.
