Ford Focus Titanium 0

Why fix something that isn’t broken? With the titanium the Focus has seen some revolutionary changes to the car. The Ford Focus has been dominating the market ever since it was released. The Titanium version of the focus released this year shows how Ford have been developing technology in order to stay ahead.

The intentions by Ford was to once again propel the Focus into the undisputed most popular family car available. We look at the 2.0 Litre TDCi in this article and the innovative technology that it offers.

This particular Focus can produce a respectable 138bhp and also has a 6 speed gearbox. New changes to the Focus on this edition include brand new bumpers and lights, both front and rear.

Technology involved with the car

Safety

Ford has implemented various safety features around the car. Passengers and the driver are a lot safer.

For £750 an extra a driver assistance pack can be added. The car now has the clever capability of scanning whether objects are ahead. Active city stop appropriately applies the brakes to prevent an accident when the car is travelling at a low speed. The technology also stops the car from hitting objects that are idle. If the car is travelling at less than 10mph then the brakes will automatically be applied in order to stop the car from hitting an object. However any faster the car will be most likely to hit the object in front of it, with brakes being applied to minimise any damaged caused.

Road signs

The new Ford Focus can also read the road signs ahead. It will certainly come in useful for those who are driving along unfamiliar and confusing roads, not understanding the instructions properly. This particular piece of technology is not advanced yet, with many road signs still not recognised by the system. Ford has said they are actively working on adding more road signs that the technology can recognise.

Automatic steering

The Ford Focus can steer the wheel without the aid of the driver in order to keep the car aligned in the correct position. The technology will scan the road markings to see whether the driver is swaying the wrong side of the road, when not indicating. The brakes may also be utilised on side of the car to align the car properly. The technology will only be utilised when the car is travelling at more than 38mph.
