The road can be a hazardous place, and every time you step behind the wheel of your Ford, you want to know you’re supported by the latest safety measures. As an established manufacturer, Ford is at the forefront of technological development, and has introduced an array of protective features to its vehicles, ensuring you’ve got a helping hand nearby, whether you’re in town, on the open road or winding through country lanes.
Active safety features are those that are computer controlled, and actively work to keep you and your passengers protected. These include technologies such as Electronic Stability Control, which constantly monitors your vehicle’s grip and provides braking pulses to add stability when necessary. Measures such as Driver Alert System, meanwhile, detect when your driving behaviour becomes irregular and warn you to take a break.
Passive safety features are also a key part of staying protected on the road. Every Ford car is fitted with a comprehensive suite of airbags, for example, so that should the worst happen, the risk of injury is minimised. ISOFIX anchor points are standard too, enabling you to fit a car seat easily. Details of many of Ford’s safety technologies can be found below – just click on a feature to find out more.
