The majority of accidents start long before the actual collision, for example, with poor visibility or an unanticipated hazard. That is why the Tourismo is equipped with many safety features which help you to master critical driving situations.
This is immediately apparent in the ergonomic driver's workstation. The driver has comfortable access to all controls and a perfect overview of all the instruments. More safety through better visibility all round is guaranteed by the wide-angle exterior mirrors.
During the journey drivers are supported by electronic assistance systems. The anti-lock braking system (ABS) minimises the risk of wheels locking during braking. The electronic-pneumatic brake control EBS substantially reduces the stopping distance as the brakes are activated more quickly and precisely. And the acceleration skid control (ASR) provides additional safety by minimising the spinning of the drive wheels when the vehicle accelerates, which in turn minimises the risk of a sideways tail-skid at the rear of the vehicle (rear-wheel drive).
ABS, EBS and ASR provide the basis for enhanced electronic safety systems such as the Electronic Stability Program (ESP®) or Brake Assist (BAS), which are also included in the Tourismo‘s equipment.
