Active Safety

Active Safety is set of safety features designed to reduce the chances of an accident at the first place. A vehicle with high level of active safety can be achieved through superior road holding, visibility, comfort, handling and ergonomics. Therefore, ABS brakes are an active safety feature whereas Airbags, seatbelts and others safety features which come into play during an accident are called passive safety elements.
