Totally in control- Be confident with Active Chassis control New Chassis Control
Confident cornering and optimal driving through a turn
What is new Chassis Control?
A car requires suspension, steering and brakes for everyday driving tasks. These systems or components are collectively known as the chassis. The technology that controls the chassis has made major strides since the birth of the car. In particular, computer technology has greatly improved safety and reliability by electronically controlling the chassis, allowing the adoption of features such as Electronic Stability Control.
Nissan wanted to develop chassis control technology one stage further by adding additional chassis controls to help deliver a fun, confident and comfortable driving experience. The technology Nissan created is the New Chassis Control, which consists of the following three technologies.
Active Ride Control
By controlling the engine (drive force) and brakes, this technology can improve driver confidence and comfort when driving over uneven surfaces.
Active Engine Brake
This technology supports drivers by adding engine braking and reducing the burden on the driver when cornering or braking.
When cornering or stopping, it is necessary to reduce speed. Vehicles equipped with the Active Engine Brake system measure the vehicle speed along with steering and braking inputs. Using these measurements, the system then automatically adjusts the level of engine braking, decreasing the time and effort the driver must take to slow the vehicle. As a result, it can reduce the amount of brake applications required by the driver, allowing the driver to have a more stress-free driving experience
Active Trace Control
This technology helps the driver feel more confident when cornering by controlling the braking on each of the four wheels in response to the driving circumstances, based on the driver’s steering, acceleration and braking on winding roads or when entering or exiting an expressway. This can help provide the driver with a more optimal line through a turn.

Three active chassis control of X-Trail are the first features equipped in small SUV segment in Vietnam, two of which (Active Ride Control and Active Engine Brake) are world’s 1st feature, allowing smooth performance and confident driving experience.
