Ford has boosted the safety credentials of its Fiesta hatch range this week, adding new Emergency Assistance technology.

Offered previously with the top-shelf Fiesta ST and Focus ST hot hatches, along with the new Kuga SUV, the system is now standard across the Fiesta range.

Available specifically from October production, the upgrade follows the extensive facelift and technology upgrade delivered to the Fiesta range in August.

“Emergency Assistance is a potentially life-saving service we think our Fiesta customers will value and appreciate,” Ford General Marketing Manager David Katic said.

“We continue to aim to cascade new features into Ford vehicles and the addition of Emergency Assistance is the latest feature to join the Fiesta range.”

Speaking with TMR today, Ford Australia's Neil McDonald confirmed that while the system is integrated with the Ford SYNC package, the technology is built into a separate module that cannot be retrofitted into Fiesta hatches built before October production.

The larger Focus has also been given a small but significant update this week, with Ambiente and Trend hatch and sedan models now equipped with a full-size spare wheel.

“The feedback from customers was that they would prefer to have a full-size spare wheel, so we’ve responded,” Katic said.

“With the recent addition of cruise control and lumbar support on the Focus Ambiente and Trend, we continually look at adding even more value into the range for customers.”

That update follows the addition of cruise control to Ambiente hatch and sedan models in September, a feature already standard across other Focus models.
