Always buy the variant that has ABS & the most number of airbags. Go for the titanium+ model which comes with 6 airbags. You can never be short of any safety features.

I hope Ford doesn't read your comment & start providing us the top model without power windows.

Default Re: Electric locking & window mechanism. Boon or bane for Safety?

I would prefer anyday, abs, airbags and strong body structure over fancy electric locking and electric windows.

Going by recent incidents, that in case of accidents/fire/water ingress, usually electric switches conkoff, always mechanicals will the last thing to fail in devices, unlike in electricals/SW

Thank you for your advice. I will go in for the top model and I have written to Ford about my concerns regarding the issue of a sure exit during emergencies if the auto-lock fails. Usually nothing would happen but rare events do occur.
