Understeering Driving Behaviour

Understeering means that, when cornering, the front wheels have exceeded their liability limit and the car pushes over the front axle to the outer edge of the curve.

The steering must be strongly taken, since it would be required according to the radius of the curve. This driving behaviour is easier to control than oversteering since, thanks to this feature, the car remains stable and even slows down. Thus, it offers the driver more safety.
