Technology with a purpose
From hands-free control of your music and mobile calls using Ford SYNC®, to the revolutionary 1.6-litre EcoBoost petrol engine, every smart technology in the Fiesta ST is designed to make life easier, keep you connected on the move and, above all, help you enjoy every drive.
Advanced hands-free technology
Ford SYNC® Advanced hands-free technology lets you control your music and make and receive calls on your mobile, using simple, direct voice commands. For example, if ‘home’ is listed as a contact on your mobile, you just need to say: “Call home” and the system will automatically dial that number. You can use voice commands to play songs from a USB or MP3/iPod® too, or when you’re streaming music from a Bluetooth®-compatible phone. The system even reads your incoming texts aloud.
It doesn’t matter how you do music. Music player. iPod®. USB drive. SYNC® works with them all. Search. Play specific artists, albums or tracks. Shuffle. In fact, play your music the way you usually do. Just tell SYNC® what you want to hear. You concentrate on the road and SYNC® does the rest. You can even stream music on your Bluetooth® phone, wirelessly.
Hear your texts
OK, so we know you don’t text and drive. But you can have your car read your texts out aloud for you. SYNC® reads your text messages so you don’t have to wait until you’re parked to find out what they say. It even understands common abbreviations and emoticons.
Confidence in challenging conditions
Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) incorporates a range of technologies designed to give you greater control of your vehicle and help keep you safe. If you have to steer sharply left or right, perhaps to avoid an obstacle, ESP precisely balances braking power between each individual wheel and can also reduce power from the engine. This helps counter understeer and oversteer, making your car more stable and easier for you to control. ESP and Traction Control can also help prevent wheelspin in wet or icy conditions. ESP has three different modes by switch.
Start the Fiesta ST with a single touch
Fiesta ST automatically senses the presence of it’s own unique key fob, even if it’s in your pocket or bag. You don’t need to have the key in your hand to start the Fiesta ST, or even unlock it. As long as you have your key fob with you, your car will unlock. Once you’re inside simply put your foot on the brake, press the start button and go.
Mind reading technology
The Fiesta ST is packed full of driver-assist technologies. Features that know what you want before you even have to ask. When the weather takes a turn, Rain-sensing Wipers automatically turn-on. And when the light fades, Auto Headlights come on to guide you safely home. So you can relax and enjoy the ride.
