The New Car Assessment Program is the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s evaluation program for new vehicle designs established to test for performance against safety threats. Now on sale at Ford dealers, the all-new 2015 Mustang received five stars in the frontal crash test, five stars in the side crash test and five stars in the rollover crash test.

“The new Mustang was built from the ground up,” said Carl Widmann, Mustang chief engineer. “It is more refined, more powerful and it has everything people have come to love about Mustang for the past 50 years.”

The Mustang has a ton of standard safety features aimed at protecting drivers and occupants, as well as semi-autonomous and driver assist features that are new to the vehicle.
