Taking a Note on Safety

As we mentioned before, the all-new Nissan Versa Note will be coming out this summer. Beyond is atheistic appeal and innovative technological advances, it's big on safety. Nissan has always taken protection of passengers as it's main priority in building vehicles, which is why the 2014 Nissan Versa Note features some of Nissan's most state-of-the-art safety systems.  
Traction control system (TCS) top right
The TCS helps you get a grip. When it senses drive-wheel spin, it reduces throttle or applies brake pressure where needed, so your wheels aren't just spinning without actually going anywhere.

Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) top left
Hit a slick spot in a corner and suddenly you may be going in a direction you didn't intend to be going. In these situations, VDC monitors steering and braking. If needed, it responds by reducing engine output and/or applying brake pressure to specific wheels.

Brake Assist and Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD) bottom right
If you slam on the brakes, Brake Assist senses the emergency and applies maximum brake force, helping you stop sooner. The EBD can detect added weight in the back, and send extra force to the rear brakes when needed. Clairvoyance, or just really smart technology?

Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) bottom left
Gone are the days when you need to pump the brakes on a patch of ice. The ABS does it automatically-faster than you possibly could-and prevents wheel lockup so you can continue to steer in panic-braking situations.
