More hi-tech options for Ford
Ford has launched a limited edition Connection series designed to make technology accessories more affordable for the everyday motorist. This pack of extra is now available in the new Fiesta and Focus Connection models.
The Focus Connection is based on the LX and Zetec lines. The Focus Connection include a KeyFree entry system and high-tech voice control. The Fiesta Connection, meanwhile, comes complete with voice-activated Bluetooth, voice-activated audio and an MP3 socket.
The KeyFree feature on the Focus Connection eliminates the need for fumbling for keys in handbags or pockets. As the driver approaches, the car unlocks the doors automatically. You even start the car without a key, just turn the ignition switch, nothing to insert, nothing to press it’s as easy as that. Voice-activated controls and Bluetooth technology means the driver can manage the audio, navigation, climate control and Bluetooth-enabled mobile phone simply through voice commands.
The MP3 connection on the Fiesta allows an MP3 player to be played through the car sound system, allowing entire music collections to be enjoyed in-car! In addition to the Bluetooth/voice control system, the car is especially well appointed, with electric front windows and mirrors, CD player with remote control, central locking, 16 alloys, front fog lamps, sunroof, leather wrapped steering wheel, body-coloured handles and mirrors and a rear spoiler.
Prices for the Fiesta Connection models start at 16055$ for the base 3-Door, 1.25i Duratec model. Focus Connection prices start at 22055$ before delivery charges.
