Upated Ford Mustang fails to achieve 5 Star ANCAP Safety Rating
Australian independent vehicle safety authority, ANCAP, has released a 3 star ANCAP safety rating for the revised Ford Mustang models following a specification upgrade by Ford to improve its safety performance.

Following the publication of a 2 star ANCAP safety rating for the Ford Mustang in January 2017, Ford has revised the safety specifications on the Mustang for the right-hand-drive Australian and New Zealand markets, but has only achieved an ANCAP safety rating upgrade to 3 stars.

ANCAP considers the revised Ford Mustang is structurally identical to the Mustang they originally rated in 2017, meaning it still falls short of their expectations in the areas of Adult Occupant and Child Occupant Protection.

Honda has stolen the show at the annual SMMT Test Day by showcasing a Civic Type R Pickup Truck concept.

Built by a specialist team from the Product Engineering department at Honda in Swindon and codenamed ‘Project P’, the Civic Type R Pickup Truck has been modified and developed from the standard road car to reach a top speed of more than 265 km/

Finished in Rallye Red, the concept retains the iconic rear wing associated with both the FK2 and FK8 Civic Type R which is movable to allow direct and unfettered access to the back of the truck.
