ASC is just traction control - if you give it too much gas and it starts spinning a tire or two, it will reduce engine power and maybe apply the brake(s) to that/those wheel(s).

DSC is a stability control system that monitors your steering inputs and uses an accelerometers and yaw sensors. Basically, it determines what you want the car to be doing and compares it to what the car is actually doing and adjusts for any discrpancy between these two parameters.

: Who know what difference between DSC and ASC ?
