A spacious open centre console built around the handbrake is designed to help you keep everything close to hand. There’s a cup holder, plus room for a laptop or A4 files and/or smaller items. There are also Aux in and USB connection points, as well as a 12V socket located towards the front of the console for the driver and passenger to use.
The innovative 1.0-litre 3-cylinder Ford EcoBoost petrol engine gives you all the power you’d expect from a conventional 1.6-litre engine (up to 100PS) whilst delivering around 24% better fuel economy and 25% lower CO2 emissions at just 129g/km. No wonder Ford EcoBoost has been awarded International Engine of the Year for the sub 1.0-litre category for a record five years in succession.
The innovative Active City Stop helps the driver avoid a collision in slow-moving traffic or at speeds up to 30mph. It does this by continually measuring the distance to the vehicle in front when it is within a near range. If the system detects the vehicle in front has unexpectedly reduced speed, it automatically applies the brakes.
Living with it
Whether the signs are at the side of the road or above it, permanent or temporary, Traffic Sign Recognition can identify them. An icon of that speed or a no-overtaking sign appears on the instrument cluster and changes every time you enter a new limit.
