Model history and safety featuresThe tested model of Ford Fiesta was introduced in Australia during 2009. This 5 star rating only applies to the Fiesta 5 door hatch when fitted with head-protecting side airbags, a driver knee airbag and electronic stability control (ESC). Dual front airbags and antilock brakes (ABS) with electronic brake distribution (EBD) are standard. Side airbags (with chest and head protection), a driver knee airbag and ESC are standard on the Zetec and optional on the other variants. Intelligent seat belt reminders are fitted to both front seats. The front seat belt buckles are mounted on the seats and the upper anchorages are adjustable. These features improve the fit of the seat belt. Pretensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash. A three point seat belt is fitted to the centre rear seat. This provides better protection than a two point (lap) seat belt.
