The car wing mirrors on Ford’s latest release have been given something of a makeover. Unlike traditional wing mirrors, the car manufacturer has replaced them with specially designed rear view cameras.Car wing mirrors on the Ford’s new Kuga will see the latest advances in technology come to the fore, offering owners the opportunity to keep an eye on the traffic behind them by using cameras rather than traditional glass.
Wing mirrors are a vital part of keeping a driver safe while manoeuvring around in their daily lives. Although the rear view cameras may appeal to some people, there is also the risk the technology could fail through a short circuit or other issue. Where would the traditional car wing mirrors with their glass be then?
Indeed, according to a report given by Auto Express this truly seems to be a car for the more technologically minded among us as it also comes complete with features such as the Ford SYNC package.This package includes a music hard drive with access to the internet using any mobile smartphone. If that is not enough, it also includes blind spot alerts, active parking and the ability to recognise traffic signs.
The new off-roader was unveiled recently at the Detroit Motor Show and is a planned replacement for the Focus SUV. Although it is not yet in production, Ford bosses such as Martin Smith told Auto Express that they are looking at the middle of 2012 as a possible launch date in the United Kingdom.The company is also hoping to sell the car in the United States and other countries throughout the rest of the world. With innovative design and features, the car manufacturer now hopes it will appeal to car owners in all parts of the world.
