Ford customers will be treated to a Trafficmaster SmartNav satellite navigation system worth £1,000 - absolutely free. That's the tempting offer for those placing an order for the exciting new Ford Focus ST, or any model from the 2006 Fiesta range, between Saturday 14 and Sunday 22 of January.
Demonstrators are standing by at dealerships across Britain to satisfy the expected high demand for test drives.
The stunning new Ford Focus ST has been developed to realise the full potential of the range's class-leading chassis. Its head-turning looks conceal a 2.5 litre Duratec ST five-cylinder turbocharged 225 PS engine with six-speed close-ratio transmission.
This combination provides a heady blend of thrilling performance and refinement. The Focus ST is available in three and five-door styles.
The latest Ford Fiesta range features striking new exterior styling, with distinctive new headlamps. Inside, a wide choice of stylish new trims and fabrics give the cabin a spacious, sophisticated feel. Like the Focus ST, new Fiesta is available in a refreshing new range of bright body colours.
A perfect complement for these highly contemporary cars is Trafficmaster SmartNav, a complete personal journey management system.
SmartNav provides human-voice directions, steers you clear of traffic jams, warns of speed-camera zones, allows a car to be tracked if it is stolen, and helps the driver find whatever facilities are required at any moment - whether it's a filling station, bank, restaurant, shop or hotel.
Unlike other systems, there is no complicated destination-entry process. Round the clock and every day, the driver can simply press a button to connect with the personal assistant and provide a postcode, name or just part of an address. SmartNav does the rest, downloading journey details in less than a minute, and keeping them updated.
The system provides clear directions at every turn, and in the event of a breakdown or emergency, the system is reassuringly always on hand to provide direct roadside assistance.
SmartNav is the latest in satellite navigation technology, using real-time traffic and road incident data to plot the best available route and provide an alternative should an unexpected hold-up occur. And because it is a live system, the user never has to pay for updates.
Trafficmaster SmartNav will be fitted free to qualifying Ford Focus ST and Fiesta cars before delivery.Published 14 January 2006
