Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control (All)

What’s the Benefit? 

VSA5 is designed to boost driver confidence by enhancing control and stability during acceleration, cornering and braking.

The Feature:

Vehicle Stability Assist uses a variety of sensors to monitor conditions and intervene to help reduce the possibility of skidding, plowing and other loss-of-traction events. 

  • The system can reduce throttle and brake individual wheels to help restore the driver’s intended path.
  • VSA’s traction-control function helps maintain stability and allows the vehicle to accelerate even on surfaces with a split coefficient of friction, such as when one wheel is on ice and the other is on dry pavement.
