Safety and Security

As you’d expect, safety is paramount in the Tourneo Custom. There’s a host of technology to protect you, your passengers and the vehicle. And it all contributes to the vehicle’s 5-star rating by Euro NCAP.

A system that can help protect pedestrians

Pre-Collision Assist detects slower vehicles in the road ahead, or pedestrians and vehicles that could cross your path, and warns you of their presence. If you don’t respond, the system automatically applies the brakes. This technology is designed to help reduce the severity of accidents, or help avoid them altogether, and functions effectively at speeds of up to 50 mph / 80 km/h (assuming normal road and vehicle conditions).

5-star safety

As proof of its ability to protect you and your passengers, the Tourneo Custom has a 5-star rating by Euro NCAP.

Keeping your trailer safely in line

Trailer Sway Control detects ‘snaking’ or trailer sway and reduces your vehicle’s speed to help solve the problem, making towing more controlled. The system slows the vehicle down by reducing the engine’s torque and gradually increasing the brake pressure on all wheels.

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.

Enhanced stability in difficult driving conditions

Electronic Stability Control constantly monitors your vehicle’s progress. It senses when a vehicle is losing grip and automatically applies a braking pulse to individual wheels, helping to stabilise it. Using advanced sensors from the anti-lock braking and Traction Control System it monitors the behaviour of the vehicle.

Continuous protection against rolling over

Ford’s unique roll-rate sensor helps the Roll Stability Control system to keep the tyres grounded, specifically under conditions where there’s a high centre of gravity and when driving through off-camber turns.

Control features that adapt to your load

Load Adaptive Control adjusts the Electronic Stability Control, according to the overall weight you’re carrying. This ensures control and stability whether your Tourneo Custom is empty or fully loaded.

Advanced systems for more controlled braking

Anti-lock braking system (ABS) and electronic brake-force distribution combine to ensure that your braking is effective. Emergency Brake Assist also helps your vehicle achieve maximum braking effectiveness in an emergency situation. It’s controlled automatically via the Electronic Stability Control system, which senses how much pressure you’ve applied to the brake yourself and automatically increases it, if necessary. And if you brake heavily, the emergency brake light system flashes the brake lights to warn other drivers.

Surrounded by airbags

The Tourneo Custom features a reassuringly comprehensive array of airbags. These include; a driver airbag as standard, plus optional passenger, head, thorax and side-curtain airbags to offer extra head protection in the event of an upper-side impact. 

A stronger bodyshell

The Tourneo Custom’s more robust body structure delivers improved crash resistance and stiffness. The increased stiffness also results in significant improvements to the ride and handling and reduces the noise and vibration inside the vehicle.

You choose which doors you want to lock and unlock

The Tourneo Custom has remote control central door locking, which is more secure than ever. That’s because you can choose to open one individual door while the other doors stay securely locked until you activate a switch on the driver’s door. This same switch controls the locking and unlocking of all the vehicle’s doors.
