4. Blind Spot Information System

​The New Transit Custom is the first Ford van in Europe to offer Blind Spot Information System with cross traffic alert. This smart technology uses rear radar sensors to track whether a vehicle is approaching or passed into the blind spot of your vehicle. This notifies the driver using a warning light in the corresponding door mirror. Using the latest generation sensors, these have an increased range and can also detect motorcycles.
