The new Ford Endura ST-Line is the perfect size to suit your lifestyle

Packed with premium features, Ford’s new medium-sized Endura ST-Line SUV is set up to be the perfect fit for the good life.

The ideal SUV has to be great-looking, highly practical, supremely safe and offer versatile performance. Enter the new Ford Endura ST-Line, the new medium-size SUV that will seriously upscale your drive.

Whether it’s loading up and heading to the bach or running errands around town, the Endura is designed to be the ultimate companion. The exterior captures a real sense of luxury – all while delivering the muscle needed for towing the boat or trailer.

The Endura seats five adults with room to stretch out – without compromising on stowage space. There’s ample space for luggage, shopping, pets, sports equipment and more.

For your second-row passengers, the two rear outer seats are fitted with inflatable seat belts. These reduce pressure on the chest and control head and neck movement in the event of impact, with innovative technology that can help reduce the likelihood of injury.

In the driver’s seat, the Endura’s cabin feels spacious, intuitive and designed for comfort. With SYNC®3 you’ll have voice command over satellite navigation, phone calls, apps and text messages, while Applink, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto allow you to bring your compatible smartphone technology into your car.

But if it’s peace and quiet you’re after, Ford’s Active Noise Control technology dramatically reduces extra cabin noise: microphones detect and measure specific sound waves, and an ingenious control unit can separate sounds you want to hear – like conversation and music. The system also creates inaudible “white noise” to cancel out any unwelcome racket.

Bicycles, kerbs, low walls… The rear-view camera activates as soon as you select reverse gear. While the Blindspot Information system keeps you aware of objects you might miss, the Pre-Collision Assist feature detects vehicles and pedestrians on the road ahead, or who could cross the vehicle’s path, and warns you of their presence. If you don’t respond, the system automatically applies the brakes.

And what’s under the hood? With upgraded sports suspension and a twin-turbo performance diesel engine, the impressive versatility of this new medium-size SUV gives it the edge for urban driving and, thanks to its performance-oriented powertrain, the Endura brings the open-road power too.

As much as you’ll probably want the Endura all to yourself, MyKey® technology is designed to make life easier when you’re sharing your vehicle. Programme the restrictions you want to set for that key – maximum speed limit, a seatbelt reminder and even the volume of the audio system. Keep the unrestricted ‘admin’ key yourself or have more than one if you need.

Now released in New Zealand, the Ford Endura ST-Line is available to test drive today. With a raft of premium features and the latest in smart safety, it’s set to be your ultimate companion that’s just the right size for everyday driving – and for adventure.
