Respond to the Unexpected
To help enhance rear-wheel grip when accelerating, the Traction Control System senses wheel spin and automatically reduces engine output and/or brakes the spinning wheel to help give you surer foothold. Acting in tandem with the Traction Control System, Vehicle Dynamic Control[*] (VDC) compares actual vehicle cornering performance to the driver's input, adjusting power levels and applying appropriate brake pressure to individual wheels to help correct oversteer or understeer, helping keep the vehicle on the steered path.

The Infiniti Advanced Air Bag System (AABS)[*] includes dual-stage front supplemental air bags with seat belt and occupant-classification sensors that adjust their inflation rate depending on crash severity and seat belt usage. If the front passenger seat is empty, a sensor will deactivate the air bag.
Seat-mounted side-impact air bags move with the seat to help maintain optimum positioning at all times. Roof-mounted curtain side-impact air bags help protect front and outboard rear occupants during certain side collisions.
The 4-wheel Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) is enhanced by Brake Assist, which helps apply the maximum brake force you need to help prevent a collision. The available Preview Braking[*] function uses the available Intelligent Cruise Control[*] sensors to detect a rapidly slowing vehicle ahead, then prepressurizes the braking system in anticipation of emergency braking. Further, Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD) helps improve braking performance by actively adjusting the amount of brake force applied to front and rear wheels.
