Ford’s Fiesta comes with big tech in a compact package. Designed with an eye towards driver convenience, the Fiesta’s Hill Start Assist feature prevents the car from rolling backwards or forwards when traversing uphill. It’s a game-changer for those of us who like a bit of added security when braking and accelerating on a slope.

Whether it’s a mountain or a molehill, with a Fiesta, your slope-fearing days are through! Naturally, we decided the best way to showcase this feature would be a demonstration – and in true Ford fashion, we pulled all the stops.*

Don’t believe us? Queue up the confetti, hold on to your donut holes, and check out the “Hill Start Challenge” below!

* – Hill Start Assist is standard on all new F-Series, Escape, Edge, Explorer, Expedition, Fiesta, Focus, Fusion, Mustang and Transit Connect vehicles.
