These features comprise of the Electronic Stability Program (ESP) which combines several functions: anti-skid regulation (ASR), stability control (CDS), emergency braking assistance (EBA) and electronic brake force distribution (EBFD). Occupants are protected by a set of six airbags – front, side and curtain. The side air bags are installed in the front seat backs.
