On slippery road surfaces, the traction control system (TCS) limits the drive

On slippery road surfaces, the traction control system (TCS) limits the drive wheels from spinning excessively, thus helping the car to accelerate. It also provides improved driving force and steering performance as the car turns at accelerated speeds.
