For peace of mind, Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) constantly monitors your vehicle’s progress. It senses any deviations from your chosen driving line, such as if you start to skid, and automatically corrects your road position to help you keep control of the car.
The system is always active, but you now have the option to switch to the ‘Reduced assistance’ mode. This helps in slippery traction situations, such as deep snow. ESP also incorporates Traction Control, which eliminates excessive wheel spin and gives you the best possible grip, performance and stability when you need it most.
Finally, with stiffer front callipers and front and rear friction materials, the latest generation of ESP gives you better response from the brake pedal and maximises braking effectiveness in difficult conditions.
