The Ford Focus ‘Best in Class’

The Ford Focus was awarded the Advanced safety awards for its driver alert, forward alert, active city stop and lane keeping aid technologies.
Ford driver alert uses a forward looking camera to monitor driving patterns, keeping an eye out for distinctive signs of driver fatigue, like sudden, exaggerated corrections or drifting out of lane.
If it detects these patterns, then a series of alarms are triggered to alert the driver and urge them to take a rest.
Ford Forward Alert monitors the road ahead, warning the driver of potential hazards and activating an automatic braking assist programme.
Ford Active City Stop is designed to help prevent accidents during urban driving, through pre-charging the brakes if it senses a collision is likely.
It can activate the brakes and reduce speed automatically.
The Ford Lane Keeping aid monitors the lane markings. If it determines that the driver is drifting out of lane, it applies a corrective torque and alerts the driver.
The Ford Ranger is Euro NCAP safest pick-up
The Ford Ranger is now the only pick-up to be awarded a five-star rating by the organisation.
In NCAP’s rigorous testing, the Ford Ranger scored 96% for adult occupant safety, 86% for child occupant safety, 81% for pedestrian safety and 71% for safety assist.
