Honda’s Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) technology is a sophisticated system designed to help drivers maintain control of their vehicle in difficult driving conditions. The system applies brakes and reduces engine power to help keep the vehicle on its intended path.

It does this by monitoring the vehicle’s speed, steering angle, and yaw rate and then making necessary adjustments if it detects a potential loss of traction. VSA provides an extra level of stability and control, helping to reduce the chance of skidding or sliding in wet or icy conditions, and can even help to correct oversteer or understeer situations.
