Stay in control whatever the conditions

Electronic Stability Control constantly monitors the progress of your Fiesta ST. It senses when a vehicle is losing grip and automatically applies a braking pulse to individual wheels, stabilising it. Using advanced sensors from the anti-lock braking and traction control systems it monitors the behaviour of the vehicle.

Airbags to shield you from all angles

In addition to the driver and passenger front airbags, side airbags provide thorax protection and are designed to direct the occupant away from the impact area. They’re also able to raise the arm of the occupant providing better space between them and the intruding structure. Curtain airbags provide maximum coverage and headrests offer protection from whiplash. With front and rear seatbelt pre-tensioners and load limiters, plus seatbelt minders, Fiesta ST helps puts your safety first.

Advanced systems for more controlled braking

Anti-lock braking system (ABS) and electronic brake-force distribution (EBD) ensure that your braking is more controlled. Emergency Brake Assist (EBA) also helps your car brake more effectively in an emergency situation. It does this by sensing how much pressure you’ve applied to the brake yourself and automatically increasing it, if necessary.

High level security

A Thatcham Category 1 security system can be fitted that includes a perimeter alarm and double deadlocks. With double deadlocks a door cannot be opened from the inside, even if attempted entry has been made by breaking a side window. To activate double deadlocking, all you have to do is press the ‘lock’ button on the key fob twice.

Five-star safety to protect you

Euro NCAP is Europe’s leading independent safety organisation. It evaluates the safety of any new vehicle using a series of stringent measures. And it’s a measure of Ford’s commitment to safety that Fiesta ST has received the highest rating: five stars.

Warns you if your tyres lose pressure

It’s always important to keep your tyres at the correct pressure, to help you save fuel, preserve your tyres and help keep you safe. That’s why sensors constantly monitor every wheel and alert you if there’s a problem, so you can pull over, check it, and either re-inflate the tyre or change the wheel.
