2020 Ford Escape Headlights Got In The Way


It seems like most of the newer models do not seem to have any problem scoring a Top Safety Pick safety rating from IIHS but the same cannot be said about getting the Top Safety Pick + rating.

The 2020 Ford Escape got tested by IIHS and while it is great that it is getting a Top Safety Pick rating, it did not get the coveted Top Safety Pick + rating because of the headlights.

The Escape is being offered with LED headlights that were given an Acceptable rating by IIHS. The model with the halogen headlights was only given a Marginal rating. To actually get the Top Safety Pick + rating, the vehicle will have to get a Good rating for its headlights.

The automatic emergency braking system on the Escape was also tested by IIHS and was given a Superior rating.
