The addition of ESC to the TATA Xenon improves the vehicle stability by detecting and reducing loss of traction (skidding). The Bosch engineered Electronic Stability Control (ESC) added on MY15 models complements the Xenon’s current safety features of Antilock Brakes, Front Seat Belt Pretensioners and Dual Front Airbags.
When ESC detects loss of steering control, it automatically applies the brakes to help “steer” the vehicle where the driver intends to go. Braking is automatically applied to wheels individually, such as the outer front wheel to counter oversteer or the inner rear wheel to counter understeer.
The addition of ESC introduces several other technologies to the Xenon range including Traction and Hill Hold control as well as Drag Torque Control, which prevents the rear wheel locking up when downshifting on slippery roads to maintain directional stability.
Another feature is Hydraulic Brake Assist, which detects an emergency braking situation and applies additional braking force to ‘assist the driver in decelerating the vehicle as quickly as possible; whereas Electronic Brakeforce Distribution changes the amount of braking power sent to each wheel.
