Their names are hard to keep straight, but they will keep you between the lines and even brake for you. And more tech is coming.
When buying a new car it’s easy to get bamboozled by so-called “specs”. There’s so much jargon it’s difficult to know what’s important: From cylinders, displacement, kilowatts, torque, transmission and cargo volume to turning circle. Throw in an array of acronyms — like ESC, ABS, AEB, LSS to BSM — and it’s no wonder many of us throw up our hands when purchasing a new vehicle, and say: “Whatevs. I’ll just buy the red car”.
It pays, however, to know your car’s safety features. They not only help you, the driver, survive a crash, but hopefully avoid one altogether.
So, here are some terms and tech you shouldn’t overlook when buying a new vehicle.
