Driving Experience

The Ford Puma has a range of innovative features designed to improve your driving pleasure. Such as Selectable Drive Modes and Ford Co-Pilot360, an impressive set of assistance technologies working together to help manage acceleration, braking, and even steering. These include Adaptive Cruise Control, Pre-Collision Assist, and Evasive Steering Assist, all keeping a watchful eye on the road ahead, alerting you to potential hazards.

Your personal driving assistant

Ford Co-Pilot360 combines a range of technologies that, together, work to make your driving experience more comfortable and more enjoyable than ever. For example, Adaptive Cruise Control automatically adjusts your cruise control speed based on the vehicle ahead. The system can even recognise speed signs and adjust your cruise control speed accordingly.

 

A smarter cruise control

Adaptive Cruise Control adjusts your cruise control speed based on the vehicle ahead. Simply enter the desired speed and distance from the vehicle in front, and Adaptive Cruise Control will automatically maintain the set distance if traffic conditions do not allow travel at the desired cruising speed.

More responsive steering in emergencies

Emergency Steering Assist helps you steer around stopped or slower vehicles to avoid collisions. The system uses radar and a camera to detect slower-moving and stationary vehicles ahead, and provides steering support to help you avoid a vehicle if a collision is imminent. The technology activates if there’s insufficient space to avoid a collision by braking and you initiate evasive action.

Driving dynamics tailored to you

Personalise your driving experience using Selectable Drive Modes by altering the Puma’s throttle response, steering, and even gear-change behaviour to match your driving style. There are five different modes including Normal, ECO, Sport, Slippery and Trail. Key information displayed via the 12.3” digital instrument cluster changes between unique colour themes according to which drive mode you have selected.

Makes parking easy…

Bollards, bicycles, low walls… The rear-view camera shows what’s behind you on a screen built into the centre console. As well as revealing objects you might miss, the system displays virtual lines to help you park into the smallest of spaces. The camera activates automatically when you select reverse gear.

…or just let Puma do the parking

Parking in a busy street or a tight space can be tricky. But with Active Park Assist, the Ford Puma makes it easier than you’d ever believe possible. Once activated, the system can identify a suitable parking space, and then automatically steer you in. It can manoeuvre you out of spaces too. All you need to do is operate the accelerator, brake and gears.

Headlights that help you see around bends

Puma’s LED headlights deliver a precise and intensely bright light beam pattern. These also include unique, signature design LED daytime running lights, as well as static cornering lights to illuminate the inside of a corner when you turn the steering wheel beyond 30 degrees.
