2012 Ford Focus- The Next Generation of Safety!

Jan 4th 2011 at 1:36 PM


What’s all this exciting talk we hear about the new 2012 Ford Focus from Capital Ford, your Regina Ford Dealer? Is it really that much safer than other vehicles? I’d say so! The new 2012 Ford Focus expanded its safety testing to more than 12,000 times in virtual and real life crash tests globally. The new Focus underwent an extensive number of testing regimes of occupant and full-vehicle computer simulations. These realistic simulations have proven to significantly reduce the number of physical vehicle crashes. The development of the new Focus was made to meet the global safety standards and even exceed them, resulting in improved crash performance!

The 2012 Focus offers a handful of new, innovative safety features, including Ford’s next generation driver front airbags with enhanced chest protection technology.  This reconfigured curve-shaped tether system pulls in the lower section to create a “pocket” to help lessen the impact of the airbag on the driver’s chest and ribs in frontal crashes.  Also, the new side airbags feature unique shoulder vents that stay open and reduce pressure for smaller occupants who typically benefit from reduced forces. Taller occupants whose shoulders block the vent could benefit from the higher pressures.  Ford also offers the first ever front passenger airbags with adaptive venting technology to enhance head and neck protection by better matching deployment force with occupant size.

In addition to the 2012 Focus’ airbags, it also offers a number of other safety features.  The Advancetrac Electronic Stability Control (ESC) with anti-lock brakes constantly monitors road conditions and the driver’s responses, then adjusts the engine power and applies the ABS brakes to ensure the wheels remain firmly planted.  The boron steel used for the body structure fortifies it and makes it four times stronger than normal high-strength steel to protect the driver and passenger while reducing weight of the vehicle.  Also available is the MyKey technology that is designed to allow owners to designate a key that will operate with special features.  For example the volume and speed can be adjusted so that if another person is using your vehicle, they have to drive using your settings.  The SOS post crash alert system protects you and other drivers on the road by automatically turing the vehicle’s horn and emergency flashers in the event of an airbag deployment.

If these aren’t enough safety features, I don’t know what is!  Capital Ford, your Regina Ford Dealer is excited to have the new 2012 Focus in stock shortly.  Come on down to your Capital Ford Dealership in Regina, SK and ask one of our friendly and knowledgeable sales staff about the new 2012 Ford Focus today!
