2016 Ford Fusion Safety Features
Rearview Camera: When you're backing out of a driveway or parking spot, the 2016 Ford Fusion's standard rear vision camera displays the area behind the vehicle on an 8-inch dashboard screen. The camera comes with guidelines that delineate your path, ensuring that it's clear of pedestrians, cars, and other obstacles.
Active Park Assist: The Ford Fusion's class-exclusive Active Park Assist system takes the stress out of parallel parking. Just activate this system when you're looking for a spot and its ultrasonic sensors will find one for you. These sensors measure the distance between the Fusion, the curb, and other cars and alert you once it identifies a spot that's big enough. You control the braking, accelerating, and shifting to get into the spot, but the Fusion does the rest.
