    • DOHC 16 valve
    • Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI)
    • Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing (D-CVVT)
      — Dual control is implemented to use a wider
          operation range of CVVT to improve torque

       Driven Power Steering (MDPS) to provide
       optimal stability

    • Electronic Stability Control (ESC) w/Traction
       Control System (TCS)
        — NHTSA studies show passenger cars
           equipped with ESC experience 35% fewer
           single vehicle crashes and 30% fewer single
           vehicle fatalities
        — Reduces unintended understeer (plowing)
        — Reduces unintended oversteer (fishtailing)
        — TCS reduces wheel spin under acceleration
        — ESC cannot compensate for severe driver error

    • Anti-lock Braking System helps maintain
       vehicle steering control
        — while braking under slippery road conditions
            (e.g., ice, snow, rain)
        — during emergency braking situations under
            any road conditions

    • Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD)
        — Balances braking forces at each wheel when the car is dynamically loaded
        — 4-sensor, 4-channel system
