These days, car manufactures are always trying to make drivers more comfortable by pampering them with luxurious features such as leather wrapped steering wheels, heated seats, ambient lighting, or dual-zone climate control – and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that! In fact, most new Ford vehicles have those features. But Ford has taken driver and passenger comfort to the next level in their new vehicles by only using safe materials, and adding an air filter that blocks harmful airborne particles from entering the car.
In a press release written by Ford not too long ago, they said, “Ford has begun requiring that more than 100 materials and components meet stringent standards to minimize potential allergy issues on the new Fusion and other Ford vehicles.” The materials that Ford is staying away from are things like latex, chrome, nickel, and any other material that people could be allergic too.
As for the cabin air filter, you’ll be glad Ford decided to start putting these in their new cars the next time you get behind a semi truck that is spewing black smoke. According to Ford, “Cabin air filters improve driving comfort by reducing particle concentration, improve cleanliness and protect climate control components from particle deposits. These filters also capture soot, smog and tobacco smoke.
