The fourth-gen Focus is already a month old, yet Ford continues to detail some of its features, including a cool reversing camera that offers a 180-degree view.
Positioned above the rear license plate, it allows drivers to see passing pedestrians, cyclists and other vehicles, thus minimizing the risk of an accident. The 180-degree view reversing camera is aided by radar sensors that monitor what’s going on at the rear, and if a hazard is detected and the driver fails to react, then it automatically applies the brakes.
“We know that for nearly all our customers, reversing is a crucial part of their daily drive – and one that some of them really don’t enjoy”, said Ford’s chief program engineer for the Focus, Glen Goold. “This little camera is helping us to make a big step forwards in making it easier to go backwards.”
In addition to the camera, detailed on video below, right after the jump, the 2019 Ford Focus also benefits from a host of driving assistance equipment. Blind Spot Information System with Cross Traffic Alert, Lane-Centring, Speed Sign Recognition, Adaptive Cruise Control, Adaptive Front Lighting System with Predictive curve light, Sign-based light and others are available for the vehicle.
Also, the all-new Ford Focus can be had with Park-Out Assist, Active Park Assist 2, Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian and Cyclist Detection, Evasive Steering Assist, Wrong Way Alert and Post-Collision Braking.
