    Except it changed with time, and so we have the odd position of the Mustang having better ratings than the FG (keeping it all Ford for clarity) but the FG is 5 Star and Mustang 2 Star because they were tested at different times.


    Similarly Focus Titanium would be 5 star, but Focus Trend 2 Star because of the tech. I understand the tech has a benefit, but is it really 60% or 3/5 stars of the cars safety values.??

    What should of happened was to simply change the standard name from ANCAP to ANCAP 11, this way the public are not misinformed by the media. furthermore, have a conversion table to compare both ANCAP systems. plus, include a list of all car makes crash tested with each score.

    What started out as an article trying to defend ANCAP has backfired badly on social media.

    "2 star" has actually had a greater impact on highlighing the inconsistencies and growing irrelevance of the ANCAP system then making Mustang look bad.
