Mercedes-Benz M-Class ESP





 By braking the outside front wheel, ESP helps to correct oversteer (fishtailing). ESP helps to correct understeer (plowing) by braking the inside rear wheel. 


 The Electronic Stability Program helps improve cornering and control. By monitoring the grip at the wheels as well as the driver's steering and braking inputs, ESP can sense differences between the driver's intentions and the vehicle's direction in turns.
