We loaded the Elantra Coupe with safety features inside and out. It’s got every feature you want to see in a car. There’s Electronic Stability Control (ESC), anti-lock brakes, airbags and more. It’s well above the average because there’s nothing standard about our commitment to safety.
Six Airbags And More
Six airbags with a front Occupant Classification System (OCS), high tensile strength steel and a sophisticated Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) system are all standard on the Coupe.
Vehicle Stability Management
The Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) system links Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and Motor-Driven Power Steering (MDPS) to provide stability on road surfaces that offer reduced traction, due to irregular pavement or bad weather. VSM can provide improved brake performance or boost acceleration, even increase steering-force assistance to help you control the vehicle.
Electronic Stability Control
One of three elements in the Elantra Coupe’s Vehicle Stability Management system, Electronic Stability Control (ESC) uses sensors in the steering system and at each wheel to compare where you want to go with where the car is heading. If a difference between the two is detected, Electronic Stability Control slows the appropriate wheel to redirect the car and help keep you on course.
Traction Control System
Working in tandem with ESC, Traction Control System (TCS) limits power and applies brakes to individual wheels to reduce the occurrence of wheelspin, and routes power to the wheel with the most traction.
Driver’s Blind Spot Mirror
This convenient feature helps you keep an eye on vehicles positioned in your blind spot. It adds a level of visibility that’s crucial to making any lane change safer.
Electronic Brake-force Distribution And Brake Assist
Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) balances braking forces at each wheel of the vehicle depending on the weight of the passengers and cargo that the vehicle is carrying. Brake Assist (BA) helps detect emergency braking situations and ensures the maximum braking force is immediately applied to minimize stopping distances.
