Electric Steering Rack VS. Power Steering Rack

For a regular commuter car, the optimal form of steering is power steering. Power steering racks will have an extra component, the power steering pump, that will supply high-pressure fluid to rack, providing hydraulic power assist. This makes steering significantly easier for the driver. As technology is constantly changing,serveral cars use electronic power steering(EPS) systems and don't come with hydraulic pumps or pistons. So it reduces the amount of weight in the vehicle.Also,electric power steering system is more efficient.

Which is better power steering or electric steering,it depends on driver's driving experience.Some insist that the power system provides a better feel for the road and that the EPS system has a tendency to make the driving experience somewhat dull.Maybe that's why a majority of vehicles on the road these days still use hydraulic steering systems.
