Is a car that stops faster and turns on demand while remaining stable or controllable a safe car? Or is it a better performer? The answer is both, of course, so if we’re not appealing to your good sense to stay alive, perhaps you’ll be turned on by reduced stopping distances, no brake fade and razor-sharp handling, which is also part of a safe car.
The interesting thing about safety, or a lack thereof, is that it creates a certain tentativeness and a reluctance, neither of which are welcome copilots in a vehicle.
