Sensors that take the stress out of parking

Parking distance sensors help you judge the distance between your vehicle and obstacles behind you. When the sensors detect an object, they activate an audible warning that intensifies the closer you get to it.

Less tiring, more economical journeys

Cruise control with Adjustable Speed Limiter helps keep your vehicle within a pre-set speed limit of your choice. It can save you fuel, minimise the chance of you speeding and, like all cruise control systems, allows you to maintain your chosen speed whilst saving you from having to keep your foot on the accelerator pedal.

KA+ Hill Start Assist

Extra control during hill starts

Hill Start Assist temporarily stops you rolling backwards or forwards when making a hill start. The system works by maintaining pressure to the braking system for an extra 2-3 seconds, giving you more time and control as you move your foot from brake pedal to accelerator. It’s also useful when you’re stopping and starting on slippery surfaces.

Ford SYNC with Emergency Assistance

An important and potentially life-saving part of Ford SYNC is Emergency AssistanceFord Emergency Assistance - updated. In the unlikely event of an accident, where the airbag is deployed or the fuel-pump deactivated, the technology can use a Bluetooth®-paired and connected mobile phone to automatically make a direct call to the Emergency Services for you. You can choose to stop the call, or talk to those services if you need to. Crucially, the system will supply vital information, such as your GPS coordinates, even if you are unconscious.
