It comes as no surprise to our Planet Ford in Humble team that the 2015 Ford Mustang has received a top safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The Mustang earned a five-star Overall Vehicle Score in NHTSA’s New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) testing.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s New Car Assessment Program is evaluation system for new vehicle designs established to test for performance against safety threats. The all-new 2015 Mustang, available at Planet Ford, 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.
