Along with its related ute sibling, the Ford Everest has scored an impressive five-star safety rating by ANCAP
The latest Everest large SUV scored well across all four key areas, however the standouts were adult occupant protection that scored 86 percent while child occupant protection was even better at 93 percent.
In the safety assistance category – meaning adaptive safety technology – the Everest scored 86 percent while vulnerable road users scored 74 percent.
The Ford Everest is available in four different variants: Ambiente, Trend, Sport and Platinum, the first of which is priced from $57,990 before on-road costs.
To compare, the Isuzu MU-X scored slightly better than the Everest in adult protection (87 percent) but worse in the area of vulnerable road user protection (69 percent).
The Everest is fitted as standard with dual-front, side-chest protecting, curtain and drive and passenger knee airbags plus a centre airbag across the Everest range.
Adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, fatigue detection, forward-collision warning, lane-keep assist, AEB (car, backover and junction assist), rear cross-traffic alert, reversing camera, roll stability and speed assistance are all standard on the Everest.
All prices listed are before on-road costs.
