When the brakes are used, the ABS will regulate the flow of brake fluid being delivered to the brake calipers. The brakes rapidly alternate at a rate of 30 times per second from full pressure to full release. In this way both maximum braking and maximum steering control is possible during braking. serial
Anti-Slip Regulation (ASR) Note: ASR electronicaly prevents weelspin - for example on snow and wet streets. serial
Electronic Stabilization Program (ESP) Note: Electronic Stabilisation Programme is an impressive active safety feature which can help to improve the occupants safety by registering and helping to correct oversteer, understeer and loss of stability in the vehicle. It helps to improve a vehicle's behaviour considerably in all critical driving manoeuvres by helping to stabilise the car.
