De­signed to en­hance pro­tec­tion, driv­ing and park­ing, this tech aims to make for a more com­fort­able, less demanding and safer driv­ing ex­pe­ri­ence

Car (South Africa) - - DRIVE -

Adap­tive cruise con­trol (ACC) with stop and go

ACC helps the Fo­cus main­tain a com­fort­able driv­ing dis­tance from ve­hi­cles ahead, while stop and go en­ables the sys­tem to bring the ve­hi­cle to a com­plete halt and au­to­mat­i­cally pull away.

Speed sign recog­ni­tion

Ad­justs the speed to within le­gal lim­its by mon­i­tor­ing speed signs when ACC is ac­tive.


When ACC is in op­er­a­tion, cam­eras mon­i­tor road mark­ings and gen­tly steer the Fo­cus to keep it cen­tred in its lane.

Adap­tive front light­ing

The cam­er­abased Pre­dic­tive Curve Light and Sign-based Light im­proves vis­i­bil­ity by mon­i­tor­ing the road and road signs ahead, and ad­justs head­lamp beams be­fore reach­ing bends, junc­tions and round­abouts.

Ac­tive park as­sist 2

The sys­tem op­er­ates gear se­lec­tion, ac­cel­er­a­tion and brak­ing to com­plete au­to­mated park­ing ma­noeu­vres at the push of a but­ton.

Pre-col­li­sion as­sist with pedes­trian and cy­clist de­tec­tion

De­tects and then brakes for peo­ple and cy­clists in or near the road ahead.
