New Ford Mondeo to feature Pre-Collision Assist
News has emerged on the incredible technical improvements of the Ford Mondeo, with the model being able to outline potential dangers ahead and automatically apply the brakes if the driver is unable to react in time.
Called the Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection, this technology is sure to help offer a safer experience for all on board and is just one part of the package of high-tech features being implemented in some of Ford's most popular models. Other new Ford vehicles that are tipped to benefit in the future include the Fiesta, Focus and Ka.
Activating once the model reaches 50mph, the Pre-Collision Assist uses radar to detect pedestrians, vehicles and other dangers in the road, as well as objects that could potentially cross the car's path, warning the driver if necessary. If no action is taken, it can also apply the brakes automatically to reduce the risk of an accident. Other tech highlights include the adaptive LED headlights, offering clarity similar to daylight to provide a clear road ahead for the driver.
More updates to the Ford Mondeo
The new Ford Mondeo will also arrive with an updated version of the Active Park Assist technology, one which comes with the added benefit of Perpendicular Parking to offer a trouble-free solution to bay parking and parallel parking.
In terms of power, the new Ford Mondeo will be available with a variety of different engine sizes, the largest of which being a 2.0L turbo which can produce 240bhp. It is also thought that a hybrid model will also become available, featuring a 1.4kWh lithium-ion battery to offer fantastic levels of efficiency.
Set to go on sale in Europe later this year, the Ford Mondeo will be available from just £19,000.
