New Ford Fiesta boasts of an array of technologies and features – aside from its new EcoBoost engine – that allows its drivers to enjoy a different level of driving experience while staying connected to the world.
An example of these technologies is the available MyFord Touch system with 6.5-inch touch screen and improved voice control, allowing drivers to have access to better navigation, communication and entertainment functions. Drivers could still benefit from the SYNC AppLink, which allows them access to Ford-approved apps on their smartphone using just voice commands or vehicle controls. They could also turn to SYNC Services for turn-by-turn navigation.
A new laudable feature of the new Fiesta is the so-called Ford MyKey. This feature allows parents to encourage safer driving by limiting what they could do behind the wheel. For instance, parents – through MyKey – could set the top speed and max audio volume of the Fiesta. Parents could also program the MyKey to mute audio until their teenage drivers have fastened their seat belts. MyKey could also ensure that teenage drivers couldn’t deactivate driver aids, safety systems and alerts.
John Schneider, Ford chief engineer at Upperbody Electronics, remarked that the new Fiesta was built for the digital generation, as it allows tech-savvy people to be connected to the world even though they are riding a car.
