Corrective steering present with the new Ford Fiesta

Motorists looking for a popular car that is going to maintain a high level of safety may want to take a look at the all-new Ford Fiesta.

The vehicle comes kitted with an advanced steering technology that helps to compensate for the tyres and suspension when they begin to suffer from general wear and tear.

Called the Electric Power Assist Steering (EPAS) system, the technology can be especially helpful if a car comes into contact with potholes and kerb stones, which could cause heavy changes in tyre pressure.

This could then make a slight variation to the suspension which could cause the steering to go out of synch, but the EPAS system intervenes to prevent this problem.

Professor Dr Pim van der Jagt, of Ford Vehicle Dynamics, said: "Research tells us that drivers can be irritated by minor pulling or drifting on their vehicle.

"This technology helps us to avoid this, while retaining all of the positive benefits offered by Ford’s EPAS system."

Among the styling features on the outside of the Ford Fiesta are the inclusions of "sleek, swept-back headlights" and a "large, inverted trapezoid grille".
