2019 Ford Endura crash tested again as part of ANCAP safety audit

It's the phone call no manufacturer wants to get. A call from ANCAP advising one of their vehicles has been purchased for a secondary verification crash test. This time it's Ford's turn, with ANCAP selecting the new Ford Endura for an audit test to confirm results obtained by Euro NCAP. An audit test occurs when ANCAP decides to reassess a vehicle and ensure it still meets the standards for ratings previously achieved in local crash-testing or via tests carried out by partner Euro NCAP.
