Vehicle Stability Assist® (VSA®)

Platinum White Pearl ILX 2020 3/4 rear view driving in a country road

The Vehicle Stability Assist® (VSA®)12 system helps makes every driver a better driver by using an array of sensors, along with ABS, to reduce the dangers of oversteer or understeer.


  • VSA® continually monitors vehicle speed, throttle position, individual wheel speeds, steering angle, lateral G-force and yaw rate.

  • When the potential for oversteer or understeer is detected, the VSA® modulator reduces the engine’s torque and applies the brakes to each wheel as needed to help stabilize the vehicle.

  • VSA® response is quick enough that instability may be corrected before the driver even notices.
