The new 2015 Ford Focus features Stability Control Technology that actively detects when a car may lead to a spin and intervenes early to help prevent the driver from losing control.
Known as enhanced transitional stability technology, it can help improve handling of the car during difficult driving conditions where there are chances of the car spinning out.
Data related to the car's speed, steering wheel position, turn rate of the steering wheel and other information is considered to determine when a skid is about to occur.
Once the risk is identified, brakes are applied to individual wheels, that required to slow down to help the driver regain control and continue on the safe path.
This enhanced transitional stability technology will be a standard feature on the Ford Focus. This technology combines real time data from sensors in the car to anticipate a potential spin by 100 to 200 milliseconds.
Engineers at Ford have been working hard to make sure that the new Focus feels more connected to the road and is even easier to drive as well.
