The fortwo is packed with safety technology, thanks to those clever people at Mercedes-Benz.

It's the only car in its class to come with an electronic stability programme (esp®) as standard. It's a clever programme which stabilises the car when necessary and helps avoid swerving. It works with the antilock braking system (abs), ensuring you can brake and steer at the same time in critical situations.

Then there's Acceleration Skid Control which transfers power to the other side of the vehicle the second a rear wheel is at risk of spinning. Plus Hydraulic Break Assist which ensures safer emergency breaking. All as standard.
