Respond to the Unexpected
Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC)[*] helps correct oversteer or understeer by applying brake pressure to individual wheels and adjusting the engine's power output. The Traction Control System (TCS) helps enhance rear-wheel grip when accelerating by sensing wheelspin and automatically reducing engine output and/or braking the spinning wheel.

Security. Confidence. The 4-wheel Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) is enhanced by Brake Assist, which helps apply the maximum brake force you need to be able to help prevent collision. The available Preview Braking[*] function uses the Intelligent Cruise Control laser sensors to detect a rapidly-slowing vehicle ahead, then pre-pressurizes the braking system in anticipation of emergency braking. And Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD) helps improve braking performance by actively adjusting the amount of brake force applied to rear wheels.
Lane Departure Prevention
Lane Departure Prevention (LDP)[*] helps keep your vehicle from unintentionally drifting from your lane. The available system utilizes a camera to monitor the distance between the vehicle and lane markings. If the vehicle drifts unintentionally towards the lane markers, the system first sounds an audible warning, then lightly applies selected brakes to help you ease your vehicle back into its lane.

Infiniti Advanced Air Bag System (AABS)[*] provides dual-stage front supplemental air bags with sensors that adjust inflation rates depending on crash severity and seat belt usage. Front seat-mounted side-impact supplemental air bags help provide additional protection for front occupants. Roof-mounted curtain supplemental air bags deploy from the headliner above the windows, helping to give outboard occupants enhanced head protection. Front-seat Active Head Restraints help reduce whiplash-type injuries, seat belt pretensioners work to help protect occupants in the event of certain types of collision, and Zone Body construction helps maintain the integrity of the passenger compartment. All are ways in which Infiniti technology helps to provide a more comfortable and safer driving experience.
