With side curtain airbags, front and rear parking sensors, reverse camera, projector headlights and dynamic stability control (just to name a few), it's little wonder Falcon achieves the highest safety rating. Hand in hand with this comes exceptional handling capabilities, all designed to keep you and your family safer than ever before.
Maximises traction and helps avoid wheel spin. Sensors individually monitor each wheel for speed and slip, and automatically brake or increase torque as needed.
Under heavy braking pressure, vehicle wheels may lockup. The ABS detects imminent wheel lockup and prevent it by rapidly releasing and re-applying brake pressure to maintain the driver’s control of the vehicle.
By interpreting the speed and force with which the brake pedal is pushed, the system detects if the driver is trying to execute an emergency stop, and if the brake pedal is not fully applied, the system overrides and fully applies the brakes until the anti-lock Braking System (ABS) takes over to stop the wheels locking up.
Falcon’s precision designed projector headlamps project a stronger beam compared with most parabolic headlights. They provide superior vision under night driving conditions by accurately directing light via innovative wing-form grille blades. And with innovative Follow me-home lighting front headlights remain lit for a short period of time after the vehicle is locked, providing lighting to guide you to your door.
You’ll have one less thing to think about in bad weather with wipers that activate automatically and adjust to the amount of rainfall experienced.
Distributes braking force between the front and rear wheels based on distribution of weight within the vehicle. This helps to reduce stopping distance and gives greater control to the driver.
