Visit Essex Ford’s exclusive preview of the expanded, premium experience Vignale Range at their Dunton FordStore near Basildon between Monday 4th and Friday 8th July.
Sold and serviced exclusively from FordStores, the luxurious Vignale Range includes the Mondeo Vignale (available from £29,345), as well as the upcoming S-MAX Vignale (available to order), Edge Vignale (coming later this year) and Kuga Vignale (arriving next year).
Ford has been inspired by the bespoke Italian car designer, Alfredo Vignale, who came to prominence in the 1950s. Every detail mattered to him and this exact attention to detail has been applied to Ford Vignale – premium design, beautiful craftsmanship and a desire for technical perfection.
The Vignale experience is about more than just an appreciation of aesthetics and high quality construction though, it also offers a dedicated service designed around you. You’ll be in safe hands with your personal Vignale Relationship Manager, who will be on call to attend to every need concerning your vehicle. This includes Vignale OneCall 24/7 customer support, collection and delivery from when you first receive your Vignale through to MOT and service appointments (including a courtesy vehicle), complimentary car washes, and an option for Premium care.
Ford earlier this year announced a new travel, event and lifestyle service that will offer Vignale customers valuable offers and access to travel and lifestyle activities, including hospitality experiences and access to VIP premieres, such as the Cannes Film Festival.
When you explore the Dunton FordStore, you will discover the Vignale Lounge where you can relax, use their tabletop touchscreens, enjoy complimentary refreshments, and learn more about the range and its exclusively designed lifestyle collection. You can even consult with your Vignale Relationship Manager about a suite of time-saving services and to personalise your Ford with high-quality, soft-touch materials, colours and the latest, cutting-edge technologies.
Up close, you see the details that make every Vignale vehicle special. The Ford design team created a unique hexagonal pattern as the Vignale signature – reflected most clearly in the exclusive grille and the stitching of the soft-feel leather seats. Modern, yet classic, this custom element announces a bold new look in car design and in the Vignale Collection.
All Vignale models are offered with an array of powerful and highly efficient EcoBoost petrol and TDCi diesel engines, in addition to Intelligent All Wheel Drive.
They also feature as standard the SYNC 3 communication and entertainment system that delivers faster performance and features a redesigned 8‑inch touch screen enabling pinch and swipe gestures for the first time. By simply pushing a button and saying “I need a coffee,” “I need petrol,” and “I need to park,” drivers can be navigated to nearby cafés, petrol stations or car parks, as well as train stations, airports, and hotels.
Vignale vehicles enhance the passenger experience with a premium audio system and front and rear ambient lighting. The S-MAX Vignale offers tri-zone climate control and a full-length opening panoramic sunroof, adding to the cabin ambience.
Front Wide-View Camera technology for the S-MAX Vignale and Edge Vignale can see around corners even when drivers cannot – reducing stress and potentially helping avert collisions. Adaptive Cruise Control technology uses forward-facing radar to enable S-MAX drivers to maintain a set distance from the vehicle ahead.
Further sophisticated technology offered for the S-MAX, Edge and Mondeo Vignale models includes Blind Spot Information System, Traffic Sign Recognition, Lane Keeping Alert, Lane Keeping Aid, Driver Alert, and Active Noise Control which uses three microphones strategically placed throughout the cabin to monitor engine noise in the interior, then directs opposing sound waves through the audio system to cancel out engine noise and improve cabin ambience.
