One has to objectively review the test results. I believe the Fusion was tested without the side airbags which are presently optional but will most likely become standard according to a Ford spokesperson in response to the results. Many of the cars that received good ratings had side air bags. To make it a meaningful apples to apples comparison they should be testing all with the side air bags or disable them. It isn't a fair comparison when they give a good rating to a car that had side airbags for the test against a car that received a poor rating that did not have airbags on the test vehicle.
