Stay in control whatever the conditions
Electronic Stability Control (ESC) constantly monitors your vehicle’s progress. If it senses any deviations from your chosen driving line, such as if you start to skid, It automatically corrects your road position, helping you keep control of the car. The ESC of the new Ford Focus now contains the new Enhanced Transitional Stability feature offering improved stability during avoidance manoeuvres and giving more control to the driver.
ESC also incorporates Traction Control, to eliminate excessive wheel spin and give you the best possible grip, performance and stability, just when you need it most.
The system is always active, but you have the option to switch to the ‘Traction Control OFF’ mode, which allows higher wheel spin to improve traction in very specific and demanding situations, for example when trying to get unstuck in deep snow, mud or sand.
Finally, with stiffer front callipers and front and rear friction materials, the latest generation of ESC maximises braking effectiveness in difficult conditions.
Pre-Collision Assist operates throughout the whole speed range detecting moving objects. If it detects that a collision is probable and there is no reaction from the driver, it sends a visual and acoustic warning message to the cluster (Forward Alert) and then applies medium braking forces.
