Hyundai has finally added the Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) to the safety feature list of the popular models like Grand i10, Xcent and Elite i20. Until now, the South Korean auto manufacturer mentioned ABS for the specific variants of these three models but there was no mention of the EBD. There was speculation whether these models come with that feature or not. However, with the latest move Hyundai has cleared the confusion.
Currently, Hyundai i10 grand sportz and Asta trims get ABS with EBD, while the SX and SX (O) trims of the Hyundai Xcent compact sedan come equipped with ABS and EBD. However, ABS with EBD comes as standard feature across all the trims of the Hyundai Elite i20 premium hatchback. The other models positioned higher in the auto manufacturer’s product portfolio are already equipped with ABS and EBD as standard safety feature.
While adding the EBD to the models like Grand i10, Xcent and Elite i20 will certainly add more appeal to these cars, entry level model of the brand, the Hyundai Eon comes sans necessary safety features like ABS and EBD. Speaking about the EBD, this technology comes combined with EBD and distributes the brake force to each wheel depending on wheel speed, road condition and weight of the car.
Currently, the second biggest car manufacturer in Indian market right after Maruti Suzuki, Hyundai is known for its commitment towards providing better safety to the occupants and driving pleasure as well. Addition of the EBD to the bestselling models like Grand i10, Xcent and Elite i20 reflects the strategy. Interestingly, Hyundai has also promised to make the driving experience of its customers more comfortable by introducing dual-pedal technology across its entire range by 2020.
