Head protection G-G
Structure/safety cage = G
The Ford Fiesta sedan was introduced in the 2011 model year. The side impact crash test ratings also apply to the hatchback version of the Fiesta, also introduced in 2011. Beginning with 2011 models built after July 2010, design changes were made to improve the robustness of the outside door handles to minimize the possibility of the doors opening in side impact crashes (note: information about when a specific vehicle was manufactured is on the certification label typically affixed to the car on or near the driver door).

Thatcham - Ford Fiesta - Rear impact - Poor rating
Ford Fiesta : Rear repair cost* £2,023.57 - POOR.
Thatcham, on behalf of the British insurers, has helped develop an insurance crash test that will encourage manufacturers to fit deeper, wider and more energy absorbing bumper beams to their vehicles in the future, both to the front and rear. This will lead to better control of repair costs, saving money for motorists.
The bumper ratings are generated from the repair cost (excluding VAT) associated with a 6 m.p.h. collision. These costs are then translated into ratings, Good, Acceptable, Marginal, or Poor. These ratings are available at www.thatcham.org/bumpers
* Repair cost given above includes VAT at 15%
