In potentially dangerous situations, this system identifies the vehicle's intended direction and applies brakes on individual wheels. The result is enough one-sided force to help keep the vehicle moving in the desired direction.
Always be in control of your vehicle. Electronic stability control makes the vehicle easier to control in difficult and extreme handling situations by reducing the danger of swerving. Electronic stability identifies the vehicle's intended direction then applies the brakes on individual wheels to help keep the vehicle moving in the desired direction. The program uses the Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), the Electronic Differential Lock (EDL) and the Traction Control (ASR) systems. Newer versions also offer a dry brake function, meaning the system wipes water off the brake discs at regular intervals by applying the brake pads to give more stability and decreased stopping distances, even in the rain.
