ESP® – your electronic guardian angel

Did you know that every year in Europe almost 43,000* people are killed in traffic crashes and that 1.28 million* are injured? Sometimes even just a single bend is enough to put your life right off track. Worldwide crash studies prove that skidding and the often resulting lateral impact is one of the main causes of severe and fatal road crashes. The electronic stability program (ESP®) counteracts skidding: it stabilizes your vehicle and reduces the risk of skidding. ESP® makes a significant contribution towards road safety.
