Airbag

The airbag is inflated very quickly with a collision or heavy impact. The airbag forms a protective cushion and helps the passengers against injuries.


ABS

Newer vehicles are usually equipped with an "Antilock Braking System" (ABS). Refer to your vehicle manual for more information on how to use ABS. The ABS system ensures that you can stop the vehicle without slipping. The ABS system comes into operation when you have to stop very quickly and press the brake pedal hard.


ESP

The "Electronic Stability Program" (ESP) helps the driver to control the vehicle when it is in a critical situation. A microcomputer checks the signals from the ESP sensors and checks 25 times per second whether the driver's steering input matches the actual direction in which the vehicle is traveling. When the vehicle is moving in a different direction, ESP detects the critical situation and reacts immediately. It uses the vehicle's braking system to stabilize the vehicle. ESP will brake the wheels individually so that the vehicle is stabilized and steered in the right direction.


GPS

A Global Positioning System, also known as GPS, is a system designed to help navigate on the Earth, in the air, and on water.


Handsfree

Hands-free is an English term that indicates that a device can be operated without the use of the hands. It is mostly used in the sense of mobile telephony in the car. The counterpart is handheld, a device is held in the hand during operation.
