Most of drivers have to compensate small directional deviations from the desired driving path when disturbances such as crosswinds, overtakings, road irregularities and unintended driver inputs  are imposed. These types of deviations have a tiring effect on driver and traffic’s safety and should be minimised. To increase the understanding the influence of vehicle’s properties in crosswind and overtaking conditions, specially vans and buses, and improving their safety, the vehicle was modeled using parameters based on real vehicle data for simulation in CarSim program. These parameters were validated or edited by simulation programs such as SOLIDWORKS, ADAMS/CAR ADAMS/CHASSIS and Well-known Calculation Software .  A method for estimating the lateral error of vehicle due to original path   in crosswind and overtaking conditions is also presented using Multi-Step Taguchi method in MINITAB. Dealing with limited but most effective factors of Vehicle’s Properties instead of  large variety of them can be used for optimal vehicle’s design and propose ideal Crosswind Controllers
