Protecting our customers
We want our customers to enjoy driving a Ford. So, to help customers who suffer with dust and pollen allergies, our engineers have designed a sophisticated filter that reduces pollen and dust in the car.
It’s just one of the many award-winning ways we design our vehicles to help our customers feel totally comfortable.
Ford has received official allergy friendly accreditation for its range of cars including the Ka, Fiesta, Focus, C-MAX, Mondeo, S-MAX and Galaxy. The accreditation has been provided by the German standards authority TUV following a series of rigorous tests, assuring that all interiors of Ford cars minimise the allergy risk to the lowest possible level. The Ford range of allergy-friendly cars has also received the official approval from the British Allergy Foundation and the European Centre for Allergy Research Foundation (ECARF). The Ford Kuga was launched at Ford's Allergy Free garden at the Bloom Festival.
Protecting children
We hope you’ll never have to experience many of the safety related technological developments in our cars. However, it’s reassuring to know that we engineer our vehicles to be some of the safest on the road.
Ford C-MAX has 4-star child protection – the first car ever to achieve a 4-star Euro NCAP rating for child protection.
Sharing good work and goodwill
We have long believed in working with people in every country in which we operate. And we will continue to support many initiatives and institutions that enhance and improve opportunities for those who live in those communities.

Ford ‘Birdies’ to help Barretstown kids
Professional golfer Claire Coughlan can count on some added support this season as she embarks on the European Tour – from the staff at the Kildare-based Barretstown camp for children living with cancer or other serious illness.
In a novel initiative, Ford Ireland, who sponsors Claire, will be donating €100 to the charity for every birdie the young Cork golfer shoots in a tour event this year.

“No pro golfer needs an extra incentive to shoot birdies, but I’m sure Claire will be delighted to know that her efforts on the course are benefiting such a worthy charity as Barretstown,” commented Eddie Murphy, Chairman and Managing Director, Ford Ireland. “From our point of view, it’s nice to link Ford’s association with Claire with our longstanding support of Barretstown in this meaningful way.”
