What is Electronic Stability Control or ESC?

Electronic Stability Control helps you stay in control of your car when going around bends too fast and when you are steering hard, or serving during emergency maneuvers and can prevent you from veering off the road. It comes on automatically when you turn on your car and kicks in automatically when it senses you losing control. It can also reduce the risk of your car rolling over.

Electronic stability control became a standard requirement for all new cars manufactured from 1st September 2011, so if you are buying a used car then you will need to check for this feature.

How does Electronic Stability Control Work?

Electronic Stability Control helps you keep control of your car by braking each wheel individually and reducing the engine speed. Sensors in your car assess the direction your vehicle is travelling, the position of your steering wheel and the brakes on your tyres. If the sensors think your car is not travelling in your intended direction the ESC starts slowing your car down by braking one or more wheels individually. Without ESC you may continue to lose control and crash or swerve off the road.
