SEAT Ibiza

Bosch has developed a new ECU which has an integrated ESP controller as well as all the necessary sensors such as yaw-rate measurement sensors and lateral acceleration sensors. This results in a more compact ESP setup as the ESP control box and controllers are no longer separate items that take up engine bay space.

The new more compact system will allow ESP stability control to be offered in smaller cars with limited engine bay space, and the system’s first customer is Volkswagen, who has already implemented it in a producion car: the recently unveiled 4th gen SEAT Ibiza.
