Ford Transit 2T and Transit Custom are both among the best vans on sale in Europe in terms of active safety. Ford Transit was awarded a Gold grade and Transit Custom a Silver grade in the Euro NCAP test, which assessed the active safety systems of Europe's best-selling vans.
For the first time, Euro NCAP tested the operation and effectiveness of the active safety systems of 19 best-selling van models. The analysis assessed the performance of autonomous emergency braking systems (AEBs), lane-keeping technology, speed limit detection and roadside monitoring systems.
In addition, Euro NCAP specifically commented on Ford's emergency braking system and rated Ford's Pre-Collision Assist as clearly the best in its class. The identification of cyclists in Transit’s emergency braking system was also rated best.
All cars were driven on a test track and filled up with 50% of their maximum load in order to best represent a normal ride.
In addition to protecting road users, active safety systems can also help to increase the efficiency of car use and bring savings in repair and insurance costs, thanks to the accidents they prevent.
Ford Transit 2T and Ford Transit Custom offer a comprehensive range of active safety and driver assistance technologies, including active cruise control with traffic sign recognition, lane-keeping system, blind-spot warning system and active parking assist.
