Sometimes, although drivers press the brake pedal as hard as they can, it may not be sufficient. Brake Assist measures the speed at which the brake pedal is pressed and the braking pressure and when the force is judged to be insufficient the system compensates by applying additional pressure.
Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD) makes it easier to maintain vehicle control and shortens the stopping distance when there is a large load on the rear wheels, such as when the car is carrying a full load of passengers. EBD optimally distributes the braking power between the front and rear wheels depending on the load in order to increase the effectiveness of the rear-wheel braking and minimize the difference in stopping distance between when the car is fully loaded and when it is not.
