Well you cannot use clutch or gearing to control braking acceleration in an automatic so for obvious reason the ABS
Another truth is its better you dont have ABS
in (some cases) cheap cars because the truth is your better off with good tires with right tire pressure than having a sub standard ABS
which looses brake pressure or the ones which brake fails/skips over tiny potholes.So last thing you want on a cost cut car is a cost cut ABS
which cant maintain brake pressure in emergency situations. This is my personal view atleast on Indian roads.
And what "Ameyan" said above is also true to a certain extent. ABS
are there on quite a few manual gear cars.Hill assist is there on XUV500 manual i guess,traction control not aware of any basic manual gearbox cars having them,wont be necessary unless your car is 0-100 under 7 secs types .Or stupid enough to wheel spin your tires through a sharp corner.
