The system measures the pressure of each of the four wheels using sensors located on each tyre, and transmits the information to the central control unit.
If one of the tyres drops below its pre-set pressure level, a message flashes up on the multifunction screen, and a warning beep sounds.
The system detects any under-inflation that could have an adverse impact on the stability of the vehicle and the safety of the driver or passengers.
In addition to improving safety, this function also encourages the driver to check tyres regularly.
