       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

           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
