Electronic Stability Control incorporates a range of technologies designed to give you greater control of your vehicle and help keep you safe. It constantly monitors your vehicle's progress. It senses when a vehicle is losing grip and automatically applies a braking pulse to individual wheels, stabilising it. Using advanced sensors from the anti-lock braking and Traction Control System, it monitors the behaviour of the vehicle.
Sensors monitor the speed of each individual wheel, the car’s ‘yaw rate’ (its angle and direction) and steering angle. In road conditions affected by weather or poor road surface quality, this technology works with said safety technologies to ensure a safe and comfortable drive.
If you need to steer sharply left or right, Electronic Stability Control accurately balances braking power between each individual wheel and can also reduce power from the engine. This helps counter understeer and oversteer, making your car more stable and easier to control. This and Traction Control can also reduce the risk of wheelspin in wet or icy conditions.
Electronic Brake Prefill
When it senses an emergency stopping situation, Electronic Stability Control pre-charges the braking system, closing any air gap between brake pads and discs. Known as electronic brake prefill, this technology helps reduce the vehicle's braking distance.
