Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Hydraulic Brake Assist (HBA)

ABS helps keep the brakes from locking up during sudden stops and helps you retain steering control during sudden and emergency braking. HBA works with ABS in those cases to help ensure that you get maximum braking power from the brake system even if you don’t press the brakes completely.
