Similarly both these safety features are offered as standard feature in all the trims of Elite i20 hatchback. The ABS and EBD are offered as the standard safety feature in all the higher trims of portfolio offered by the Korean car maker. It is believed that the integration of EBD in these cars will definitely help in increasing their sales. It would be interested to know that even the EON hatchback, the entry level car by the Korean car maker is also equipped with both these safety features. Integration of EBD distributes the brake force individually on each wheel depending upon the speed, road condition and also the weight of the car.
