GallerySafety and stability all aroundClass leading safety. On its own, character isn't enough. A car needs to be complete from every single standpoint. Beneath the up-to-date body shell the Picanto's designers have built in the latest class-leading safety measures.Body shellBody and frame strength has been increased to ensure rigidity and steering stability, while energy-absorbing structures provide protection in the event of a collision.Pedestrian safetyFor the safety of pedestrians, the all-new Picanto adopted various anti-injury designs during the development stage. The vehicle' s frontal structures are especially optimized to reduce potential head and leg injuries of pedestrians. Bumper lower stiffener is an important additional component required for the protection of a pedestrian's lower leg.Seatbelt pretensionersIt's reassuring to know that your seatbelts can sense deceleration. Pretensioners on the front seatbelts limit the body's movement and load limiters reduce the pressure against your body to protect you from the seatbelt itself.Hill start assist control (HAC)We know what it's like when you have to pull away from a standing start when you're on a steep upward incline. HAC stops you from rolling backwards.Front/side/curtain airbagsSix airbags in total: One each for the driver and front seat passenger, two at the sides, two curtain airbags running the length of the cabin.Reassurance out on the roadEngineered with active safety. Oil spills, wet weather, poor road surfaces. The new Picanto incorporates the latest active safety features to ensure you can head off where you want without worrying about the driving conditions.ESSESS (Emergency Stop Signal) detects when you apply the brakes in an emergency, immediately activating the brake lights and flashing them three times to warn other drivers.VSMVSM stands for Vehicle Stability Management, and works in conjunction with Motor Driven Power Steering to ensure the car stays stable when simultaneously braking and cornering.ESCWith Electronic Stability Control (ESC), sensors detect wheel speed and steering angle when you apply the brakes, delivering the appropriate braking force to each individual wheel to maintain steering control and slow you down safely.
