Upgraded Ford Mustang manages three-star Euro NCAP crash rating

The addition of various safety technologies has seen the updated, 2018 Ford Mustang coupe's Euro NCAP crash score climb to three stars. While not exactly a cause for raucous celebration, the new result published by Euro NCAP is certainly better than the infamous two-star crash score awarded by its Australian partner, ANCAP, at the start of this year.
