Ford Fiesta Van
Comes alive in the city..
A real van about town..
Night and day, it delivers...
When good looks make good business sense
Sensors that take the stress out of parking - Parking distance sensors help you judge the distance between your vehicle and obstacles around you. When the sensors detect an object, they activate an audible warning that intensifies the closer you get to it.
Quieter, more peaceful cabin - Refinements in the cabin counter noise not only from the engine but also from the wind and road.
A comfortable temperature in any environment - The efficient and easy-to-use heating and air-conditioning systems provide a comfortable environment at all times.
Essential journey information - An on-board trip computer gives you useful facts and figures about your mileage, fuel consumption, speed and the outside air temperature. It also includes 'distance to empty': roughly how far you can go on the fuel left in the tank. This is particularly useful on long journeys, or if you don't know you'll be driving somewhere remote.
Extra control during hill starts - Hill Start Assist temporarily stops you rolling backwards or forwards when making a hill start. The system orks by maintaning pressure to the braking system for an extra 2-3 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.
Ford 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 use a Bluetooth-paired and connected mobile phone to automatically make a direct call to the Emergency Services for you. You can choose to stop the call, or talk to those services if you need to. Crucially, the sytem will supply vital information, such as your GPS coordinates, even if you are unconscious.
Performance and Efficiency - High-performing diesel technology - The advanced 1.5 Litre Duratorq TDCi ECOnetic diesel engine delivers 95PS and 205Nm of torque. Surprisingly for suh a powerful engine, it also gives exellent fuel economy (88.3 combined mpg) with low emissions (82g/km CO2)
Re-charge your battery more efficiently - Unlike traditional systems, Smart Regenerative Charging only charges the battery when it needs it and whenever possible, avoids doing so when you're pressing the accelerator. This can help save even more fuel and further reduce emissions.
Use less fuel with Auto-Start-Stop - When you stop at traffic lights or your vehicle is idling ina queue, this technology can automatically switch off the engine (while still supplying power to essentials like the headlights, air-conditioning, radio and the Ford SYNC system). When you're ready to move just depress the clutch and select first gear as usual, or press the accelerator on and automatic and the system restarts. Auto-Start-Stop is particularly effective in town and city streets, where it can cut fuel consumption by up to 10% (urban cycle).
More fuel-efficient gear changes - A Shift indicator light on the instrument panel tells you when to change gear for maximum fuel efficiency. It's a simple but effective way to help make every journey more economical.
Ford SYNC. Advanced hands-free technology - Ford SYNC lets you control your music and make and receive calls on your mobile, using simple, direct voice commands. You can use voice commands to play songs from a USB or MP3/IPod too, or stream music from a bluetooth-compatible phone. The system even reads your incoming texts aloud (dependent on the mobile phone that is connected).
High-quality audio on the move - A CD/Radio is standard and DAB Radio is added from Trend. The Base Van also has connections for iPod and other music players, so you can always travel with your favourite music.
Ford Easy-Fuel, for Foolproof filling-up - This useful technology makes it almost impossible to put the wrong fuel in your vehicle, because the wrong noddle simply wont fit. Even better, as Ford Easy-Fuel is a capless system, you'll never have to handle a dirty fuel cap again.
Clear your windscreen quickly, With Quickclear - This clever feature is designed to get you on the move quickly on frosty mornings. Just touch a button and ultra-thin filaments can superheat to de-ice, de-fog and de-mist your windscreen as well as help defrost the wipers. The system works in seconds, even if it's freezing outside.
Perimeter alarm for added security - An optional perimeter alarm protects your vehicle by sounding if th the doors or bonnet are opened by force
An early warning if a tyre is going flat - if any of your tyres stat to lose pressure during your journey, the tyre pressure monitoring system warns you immediately if theres a punctur by lighting up an icon on the instrument panel.
Stay in control whatever the conditions - Electronic Stability control constantly monitors your vehicle's progress. It senses when a vehicle is losing grip and automatically applies a braking pulse to individual wheels, stabilising it. Using advanced sensors from the anti-lock braking and Traction Control System it monitors the behaviors of the vehicle.
To help avoid low speed collisions - The innovative Active City Stop helps the driver avoid a collision in slow -moving traffic or at speed up to 30mph, it does this by continually measuring the distance to the vehicle in front when it is within a near range. If the system detects the vehicle in front has unexpectedly reduced speed, it automatically applies the brakes.
Load management - A range of practical features are designed to help you maximise load carrying ability and productivity:
- 1.0 cu.m loadspace
-DIN-compliant full height bulkhead with mesh top hold
-Four DIN-compliant load tie-downs
-Tow bar option
A van that only needs time off, once a year - with long life components, robust design and superb build quality, Fiesta Van is made to last. Thats why service intervals are set at 12,500 or 12 months.
