Any parent of young children knows how important it is to have a vehicle with safety features when traveling with the family in tow. The 2015 Ford Focus is the perfect car when safety is important. Check out this sharp looking vehicle at Greenwood Ford.
The newer model Focus uses rear radar sensors to warn the driver of an approaching vehicle in the blind spot on either side of the car. This BLIS, Blind Spot Information System, with cross-traffic alert, lets the driver know when a car is coming toward the Focus when backing out of a parking spot. Another great safety asset is the rear-view camera that immediately displays what is behind the car when it is backing up. This is a major safety measure when little ones are playing in the driveway at any given time.
The SYNC system is a voice-activated technology that ensures the driver always has hands on the steering wheel when driving down the road. SYNC software allows the driver to use the phone to access turn-by-turn direction assistance, weather, and traffic reports, with a subscription service. For instance, after the driver makes a request, the system downloads the information needed for directions to a destination to the vehicle computer.
MyKey enables the owner to control the top speed and audio volume of the car when another driver has the vehicle. The SecuriCode feature allows the driver to use a keyless entry keypad to access the vehicle, without using push buttons or a key. When shopping at Greenwood Ford, be sure to look at the new 2015 Focus, and you will not be disappointed.
The Ford C-MAX Hybrid, Car of the Future
An energy-conscious driver will want to visit car dealerships in Indianapolis to learn about the Ford C-Max Hybrid car. This electric car is run on a 2.0L Atkinson-cycle gas engine and an electric motor. A lithium ion battery, which can be charged with a 240 volt home charging station, powers the motor. The gas powered engine combines with the motor to produce horsepower that reaches forty five miles per gallon in the city and forty on the highway.
An electronically controlled, continuously variable transmission provides a smooth ride. The Next-Generation SmartGauge with EcoGuide houses a built-in My View screen which shows the odometer, engine coolant temperature, and the fuel economy. A symbol of a battery shows how many miles are left before it is empty and needs a charge. There is a learning curve, and plenty of information for the first-time user of this hybrid vehicle.
A Ford C-Max has seating space for five people. The back seats can be folded down to create extra storage space when needed. In-floor storage space for small items is also located in the back seat area. A popular feature of this vehicle is the foot-activated lift gate for hands-free access to the back of the vehicle when carrying a child or shopping bags.
The stylish vehicle which can be found at car dealerships in Indianapolis has seventeen inch machined aluminum wheels and active grille shutters that aid in air resistance and fuel efficiency. Side mirrors that are heated in winter are available for order, as well. Standard airbags are located in seven areas of the car for driver and passenger safety.
