| Electronic Stabilization Program
ESP can help prevent crashes and rollovers by stabilizing a vehicle at the onset of a skid. Using a variety of sensors, ESP helps stabilize the handling of the car by braking the individual wheels selectively and by automatically adjusting the engine’s output. The system works in conjunction with the anti-lock brakes and traction control systems that are already standard on every Volkswagen model.
Anti-Slip Regulation improves driving and steering characteristics by preventing the front wheels from spinning under acceleration. When a difference in driving wheel speed is detected, the system automatically reduces engine torque. Electronic Differential Lock uses the ABS sensors to determine if one wheel is spinning faster than the other.
