At iDrive Ireland your safety is our No. 1 priority. With that in mind our 2013, 5* NCAP rated, Ford Fiesta will keep you as safe as possible while still being fun to drive. We are confident you’ll love taking your driving lessons in this car!
Here are some of it’s safety features:
- SYNC with Emergency Assistance
An important and potentially life-saving part of Ford SYNC is Emergency Assistance. In the unlikely event of an accident, where the airbag is deployed or the fuel-pump deactivated, the technology can automatically make a direct call to the Emergency Services for you. You can choose to stop the call, or talk to the operator directly if you need to. Crucially, the system will supply vital information, such as your GPS coordinates on your behalf.
- ESC helps you stay in control, whatever the conditions
Electronic Stability Control (ESC) constantly monitors your car’s progress, senses if you veer off course or start to skid and automatically corrects your road position. The system is designed to help you maintain control of the car and can also help reduce stopping distances in an emergency.
- Airbags to shield you from all angles
In addition to the driver and passenger front airbags, there are side airbags with thorax protection and curtain airbags with head protection. There’s even an airbag to protect the driver’s knees.
- Extra control during hill starts
Hill Start Assist temporarily stops you rolling backwards when making a hill start. The system works by maintaining pressure to the braking system for an extra 2.5 seconds, giving you more time and control as you move your foot from brake pedal to accelerator. It’s also useful when you’re stopping and starting on slippery surfaces.
It is also packed with lots of helpful features like the fully adjustable leather steering wheel for both height and reach. The driver’s seat is also height adjustable. It comes with electric wing mirrors and it will even tell you when to change up gear!!! So, what are you waiting for? Call today to book your lessons.
