ABS system

The car is fitted with an ABS braking system, which prevents the wheels from locking when braking, makes the most of road grip and gives the best control when emergency braking under difficult road conditions.

System is completed by EBD (Electronic Braking Force Distribution), which distributes the braking action between front and rear wheels.

If the ABS system cuts in it is a sign that the grip between the tyre and the road surface has reached the limit: you must slow down to match the speed to the road grip available.

IMPORTANT To have the maximum efficiency of the braking system, it is necessary a setting period of about 500 km: during this period, it is better to avoid sharp, repeated and prolonged brakes.
