I’m not a car enthusiast nor an expert but since a friend of mine has spent the whole afternoon sharing with me on sports car’s safety features, I thought it may be a good idea to post it here for the auto fans. Living a meaningful life to some means pursuing their passions and dreams. While some of us are focused on healthy lifestyle, quality time with the family, others enjoy life’s pleasures in comforts and luxury. My friend was talking about the popular Mustang and it was his dream to own one some day.
According to him, when buying a sports car, you should consider how safe it is to drive.
Functional safety requires the features to prevent the automobiles from accidents. This includes efficient brakes, responsive grips and reliable suspension. Below are some of these functional safety features. You should be aware of each feature so that you know when you have spotted your ideal sports car.
ELECTRONIC STABILITY SYSTEMS. This feature has the ability to sense when a car is out of control and intercedes the wheels by using discriminatory braking to specific wheels. It includes the traction controls and anti-lock brake system. This feature is seen mostly on luxury sports cars as it is expensive.
ANTI-LOCK BRAKING SYSTEM or ABS lets automobiles to halt quickly and still continue to be easy to maneuver. Anti-lock brake systems are activated by using intense pressure so you need to learn how to do this.
Effective TRACTION HANDLING helps cars maintain their grip even during acceleration.
On the other hand, inactive safety features are those that protect the driver and other passengers whenever the functional safety features are unsuccessful. This includes an adjustable headrest and airbags.
