Ford models to get DAB radios

The best-selling Focus, C-MAX and Kuga will be the first models to receive DAB, it has been announced.

Other vehicles in the Ford range are scheduled to offer the option later this year.

DAB widens the choice of radio stations for music-loving drivers and offers a sound quality free from the type of interference which can blight old-fashioned AM and FM broadcasts.

Dirk Kusche, Ford audio engineer, is excited by the news.

He said: "Many of our customers enjoy the benefits of DAB radio at home. Our new Sony DAB systems provide the same listening quality in your car, with less interference than AM and FM broadcasts and a choice of additional stations."

The Ford Kuga Titanium already has DAB as standard, something which has proved a big hit with its owners.

DAB will cost £300 on the Focus Style, Zetec, ST-1 and Econetic.

The C-Max Style and Kuga Zetec will also be able to receive a better reception for the same price.
