The Fiesta Euro-inspired front suspension is a lightweight, compact design ideally suited to the demands of tight, winding roads requiring maximum agility and stability. The suspension arms and stabilizer bar are connected to a front crossmember that is hard-mounted to the unibody structure, helping to isolate the body from the suspension system. Additional braces from the back of the crossmember to the body help enhance performance, while the stabilizer bar helps reduce body roll while cornering. The twist-beam rear axle is designed to reduce understeer.
Electric power-assisted steering (EPAS) operates more efficiently than conventional steering, with an electric motor instead of a power-draining hydraulic pump. Its speed-sensitive technology adapts to changing conditions to improve maneuverability and handling. EPAS provides an easy, fluid feel to the wheel during low-speed maneuvers, which becomes firmer as speed increases. That’s not all. EPAS can offset pulling or drifting caused by steady crosswinds or crowned road surfaces and can also damp wheel vibrations.
Standard AdvanceTrac® automatically applies the brakes and modulates engine torque whenever it detects wheel slip. Working with AdvanceTrac technology, the Anti-Lock Brake System helps maintain braking control under conditions such as ice, gravel or rain, providing confident stopping power.39
