Roll Over Protection System (ROPS)
The system consists of two parts, a preventive stabilising system and a protective system.
The stabilising system Roll Stability Control (RSC) minimises the risk of overturning, for example during sudden evasive manoeuvres or if the car skids.
The RSC system uses a sensor which registers changes in the car's lateral inclination angle. This information is used to calculate the risk of the car overturning. If a risk exists then the ESC system engages, engine torque is reduced and one or more wheels are braked until the car has regained its stability.
