Frontal impact compliance status of vehicles by vehicle make

These lists show the Class MA vehicles (passenger cars) by make and model that manufacturers have advised as meeting (or not meeting) New Zealand's frontal impact requirements. For completeness we have included some lists that were produced at the time frontal-impact legislation was being implemented in various countries, and some of these lists have not been updated since then.

Please note that the information on these lists is supplied by vehicle manufacturers, and is not exhaustive. The NZ Transport Agency has taken every reasonable precaution to ensure the accuracy of this information. Contact an entry certifier if you are in doubt about any of the information in these lists.

Frontal impact compliance status

Ford – revision 7

The table below lists the frontal impact compliance status of some Class MA Ford vehicles first registered new in the Australian and Japanese markets.

You must read our pages on importing a vehicle in conjunction with this information.

Important: Some Ford Freda vehicles do not meet an approved frontal impact standard. If you have one of these please read this important notice relating to these vehicles.
