M-ASTC

Enjoy the Excitement of a Safer Drive

Using an array of sensors for real-time awareness of vehicle status, M-ASTC allows you to drive assertively and with the confidence of complete control. Automatically engaging to eliminate understeer and oversteer in corners, M-ASTC adjusts braking force to each tire independently via the ABS system, while managing engine output via the electronic throttle control. The enhanced control becomes particularly important when swerving to avoid an object or on less than ideal surfaces.

Controlled Braking for Improved Response

Managed by an advanced four-channel, multi-mode ABS computer incorporating an Electronic Brake-force Distribution system, Pajero's front disc brakes and rear drum-in-disc brakes are designed to keep you safely in control on any driving surface.

Electronic Brake-force Distribution

Basic science teaches us that the heavier an object is, the more effort is required to bring it to a stop. EBD, by modulating each channel's braking force independently, makes sure you come to a quick, safe stop regardless of cargo load or road conditions.

Anti-Lock Braking System

If the road throws you an unexpected curve, you'll be ready. ABS prevents tire-lock by activating the brakes thousands of times a second the moment you step on the pedal, letting you steer around obstacles as you reduce speed.

 

Added Protection

Even if you have Pajero's handling and braking to keep you out of emergencies, the other driver may not. For these situations, Pajero complements the front 3-point ELR seatbelts with front SRS airbags for driver and front passenger, as well as side airbags that deploy exactly where needed regardless of seat adjustments. And of course, for total peace of mind, you should always wear your seatbelt.
