Ford gets into gear with new Fiesta

New Fiesta also brings the new Ecoboost 1.0 litre engine to Malaysia

The Ford Fiesta's had a refresh which brings a new front face – Aston Martin-like – and several new toys and gadgets present on the Fiesta for the first time in Malaysia. The biggest toy on offer is Sync by Microsoft.

Sync your phone and car

Developed in tandem by the two companies, Sync is Ford’s own take on an In Car Entertainment (ICE) system where the passengers can connect or pair their media to the car’s audio system. Technologies such as Ford Sync were initially available only on some vehicles but Ford is making them accessible to more customers by introducing them across its vehicle line-up, including the new Fiesta, a first in Malaysia.

With Sync, Bluetooth connectivity and MP3 capabilities, the tech-savvy can be constantly plugged into their favourite music and connected to their world while on the go. It allows drivers to answer phone calls and select music from devices connected via Bluetooth or USB, and listen to text messages by simply using voice commands. This helps drivers to keep their hands on the wheel and eyes on the road at all times. No more one-handed driving on the streets!
