This is definately different from the USA models, they all have switched for ESP or ASR, my 202, my bother's 210 and 211 all have them. The switch lets you turn it partially off, but never fully.
However, ESP supersedes ASR, as ASR controls the rear wheels brakes only, and ESP controls all four. So you can't really have both, as the sensors and computer, brake master cylinder, and ESP control module would all be set up for ESP optimization.
