Ford drivers can now listen to digital quality radio while on the move thanks to the latest in-car DAB (Digital Audio Broadcasting) audio systems.

DAB offers drivers a wider choice of radio stations in a sound quality free from the type of interference which can affect traditional AM and FM broadcasts.

The best-selling Ford Focus, Ford C-MAX and Ford Kuga are the first models to receive DAB, with other vehicles in the Ford range scheduled to offer the option later this year.

Dirk Kusche, Ford audio engineer, says: “Many of our customers enjoy the benefits of DAB radio at home.  Our new Sony DAB systems provide the same listening quality in your car, with less interference than AM and FM broadcasts and a choice of additional stations.”

DAB is integral to the premium Sony CD audio system, which is available as an option on Ford Focus, C-MAX and Kuga models.  Ford Kuga Titanium has DAB as standard.

What is it? In-car audio capable of receiving digital radio broadcasts, delivering high-quality sound quality
How to get it Available as an option on new Ford Focus, C-MAX and Kuga.  Standard on Ford Kuga Titanium
What's the cost? £300 on Focus Style, Zetec, ST-1 and ECOnetic; C-MAX Style and Zetec; Kuga Zetec (cost includes upgrade to Sony audio).
