I am considering buying the Ford S-Max, second-hand. I went to euroncap to see safety ratings, but they rate only 2 years: the 2015 model and the 2006 model.

I need to make a choice between a few different years: 2006, 2008, 2010 and 2013. Will the safety of the car be the same for all these years?

The 2006 through 2015 use the same chassis and the same systems, therefore they have essentially the same safety. All of them have ABS, EBD (brake-force distribution), and ESP (stability control). All have airbags and pretensioner seatbelts.

In late 2015 a new model was introduced which in some markets is a 2015, in others is a MY2016. This model is all new and would have different safety ratings.
