ABS with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) and Traction Control System (TCS).

ABS helps the driver maintain steering during emergency braking situations.
EBD - 4-wheels/ 4-channels/4-sensors (brake force applied independently to each wheel).
TCS automatically reduces wheel spin under acceleration by reducing the throttle opening and/or applying the brakes.
S
Vehicle Stability Management (VSM)
– Integrates control of systems including
   ESC and MDPS to provide optimal
   stability
– Improved brake performance by steering
   force assistance on an asymmetric road
– Improved acceleration performance by
   steering force assistance on an
   asymmetric road
S

Electronic Stability Control (ESC) w/Brake Assist

ESC will automatically apply brake force to the appropriate wheel(s), retard timing and reduce throttle, if needed to help drivers maintain control of the vehicle during unforeseen driving conditions.
Brake Assist - Provides maximum braking force when a panic stop is detected.

Motor-Driven Power Steering (MDPS) - Column mounted.

MDPS is fuel saving and has less noise than hydraulic power steering.

Power Assisted, Engine-RPM-Sensing

Steering assist is less when vehicle is driven straight, avoiding over-sensitivity; Assist increases during low-speed maneuvering to reduce the amount of steering effort required by the driver
