Didn't look special.

Definitely didn't sound special - must have had the 4 cylinder engine.  :roflmao::roflmao:

Why?  just why would you do that?  Why would you buy it if it didn't have the V8?

The problem with EuroNCAP is that it's weighted on passive safety mods, so if Ford stuck on auto braking, all round cameras, blind spot monitoring, radar etc as standard (or even just for the test) it would have been 4.5 or even 5. 

Its just like EuroMPG rates, it's all smoke and mirrors ( or lack of smoke in this example).

Bloke down the road supplemented his beige Volvo estate with a yellow V8 Mustang. He looks like Penfold driving a banana.

Aren't they all active safety features?

Passive safety features are those that mitigate the effects of a crash, active attempt to prevent a crash from ever happening in the first place.

Same same. If the car had them it would have done better, The MY17 European model will have 'Pre-Collision Assist and Lane Keep Assist as standard'.
