Many know this, but a few might not:
Very Light means a "strong" assist, feeling like very little effort is required to move the wheel.
Although "light" steering can help make turning the wheel while parking much easier, it tends to remove the "road feel" from steering.
When a car's wheels (tires) are "pulled" to the left or right, by uneven road surfaces, ruts, groves, etc., the driver can normally feel the steering wheel try to twist in his grip. This gives the driver better feedback and a stronger feeling of being "connected to" (being aware of) the road conditions. Thus, one has a greater feeling of "driving" and being the one who controls the car's motion and steering, rather than just riding in a robot-controlled vehicle.
