ABS with HBA
ABS actually serves two purposes when it comes to safety. Not only does it help keep the brakes from locking up during sudden stops, it also helps you retain control over the steering in the event of a potential collision. So you can still maneuver the car as you attempt to avoid whatever is standing in your way. Hydraulic Brake Assist, or HBA, works together with ABS to help you get the maximum braking power from the brake system even if you don’t press the brakes completely. How? It judges the suddenness of the braking and applies extra pressure when you need it most.
