Safety and Security

From alerting you to potential collision hazards, to clever systems that help you to maintain traction and stability: your safety is our concern. That’s why the Ford Puma comes loaded with clever assistance technologies, all designed to help keep you, your family and other road users protected.

A system that can help protect pedestrians

Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection uses camera technology to scan the road ahead. If a collision risk with a vehicle, pedestrian or cyclist is detected, it’ll then provide you with a warning. If you don’t respond in time, the system can automatically apply up to full braking force to help reduce the severity of, or even eliminate, some frontal collisions.

Maximises braking in an emergency

Emergency Brake Assist is designed to recognise an emergency braking situation and optimise the pressure within the braking system to provide maximum stopping power.

Tyre Pressure Monitoring

An early warning if a tyre is going flat

If the Tyre Pressure Monitoring System detects any of your tyres are starting to lose pressure during your journey, the System warns you by lighting up an icon on the instrument panel. You can also get alerts delivered straight to your phone via the FordPass app, monitoring tyre pressure, washer fluid and lots more.

Keeps you in control

Electronic Stability Control constantly monitors your vehicle’s progress. Using advanced sensors from the anti-lock braking and Traction Control System, it can detect when a vehicle is losing grip and automatically apply a braking pulse to individual wheels to help stabilise it.

Maximum grip with minimum effort

An advanced Traction Control System eliminates excessive wheelspin and gives you the best possible grip, performance and stability, just when you need it most. The system constantly monitors and adjusts the power delivered to the vehicle’s individual wheels ensuring maximum contact and grip when you’re accelerating.
