ASC - Anti Skid Control

The Anti Skid Control (ASC) keeps the driving wheel spin within the optimum range during hard acceleration or on slippery surfaces. The system uses information taken from the ABS sensors which monitor the rotational speed of the wheels and can intervene by individually applying the brakes or even cutting the engine power to the driving wheels until the wheel spin is counteracted.

Therefore, regardless of how hard the driver presses the gas pedal, the ASC system intervening on the engine power and on the brakes controls the car's acceleration with maximum possible efficiency, ensuring that none of the driving wheels will spin excessively.
