Vehicle safety should be a priority for car owners. Equipping your vehicle with appropriate safety features can go a long way in mitigating risks associated with accidents and injuries. Accordingly, today’s modern cars offer standard vehicle safety features such as seat belts and airbags as standard configurations.
At CMH Mitsubishi Ballito, we understand the importance of safety and offer a wide range of vehicles equipped with advanced vehicle safety features.
In this blog, we dive into three vital standard vehicle safety features and why they matter.
First up, seat belts. Seat belts are a critical and standard vehicle safety feature that ensures occupants sit correctly for other safety systems to function properly. In a collision, the pre-tension mechanism secures the belt and prevents ejection, while the force-limiting feature maintains safe force levels.
Anti-lock Braking System
The anti-lock braking system (ABS) is another pivotal safety feature that prevents wheel lock during intense braking. Locked wheels can compromise steering control when evading obstacles. However, ABS, Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD), and Brake Assist (BA) offer sophisticated braking systems that optimise driver control and apply maximum brake force in emergencies.
Airbags augment the safeguarding capabilities of seat belts by providing supplementary protection. It’s crucial to understand that airbags function most effectively with seat belts.
At CMH Mitsubishi Ballito, we offer a range of cars with advanced and standard vehicle safety features, and our team collaborates closely with customers to identify vehicles that align with their budget and safety requirements. We also offer comprehensive guidance on child seat installation and other safety-related concerns.
