Dearborn, Michigan – The all-new 2010 Ford Fusion and Fusion Hybrid have been named a “Top Safety Pick” by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

Ford said it is the only automotive brand to offer two hybrids that have segment-leading fuel efficiency, Top Safety Pick awards, and exclusive safety technologies, for the Fusion Hybrid and Escape Hybrid.

To be named a Top Safety Pick, a vehicle must earn the top “good” rating for IIHS offset frontal and side crash tests, for a rear crash test that evaluates seat and head restraints, and offer electronic stability control.
