It’s dark along the Pacific. A series of shadows falls across the road, broken only by the stray flicker of a passing car; and an ever-present layer of fog lingers in the air. You can’t… see and you give a frustrated sigh, squinting into the evening and hoping no sudden obstacles arise.
Ford suggests a more proactive solution - offering Seattle drivers advanced safety with its 2018 Fiesta.
According to Automotive World, the new Fiesta proves adept at every turn. This hot hatch has been painstakingly engineered, with Ford emphasizing both prevention and protection. Fused with boron steel, it delivers a strong T-Pillar construction, minimizing impact energy and reducing the chance of structural failures. Integrated intrusion sensors monitor the cabin, activating inflatable seat-belts and side-curtain airbags within milliseconds of a crash; and the intuitive SYNC 3 infotainment system automatically releases SOS alerts in the wake of an accident (notifying emergency personnel, including 911-dispatchers or the police).
Most impressive, however, is the suite of assistance programs - each meant to improve driver responses and ensure more efficient roadside monitoring. The 2018 Fiesta blends Cross-Traffic Alerts, Blind Spot Warnings, and Pedestrian Detection Technology to provide smart collision negation solutions. Information (gleaned from a 360-degree exterior camera) is fed into a high-definition screen, providing real-time support for every mile.
Through this, Ford promises safety in Seattle.
