Closer contact between the engine and the drivetrain is hardly possible: As all the wheels are driven directly, the vehicle develops exceptional handling dynamics. For better pulling away and acceleration, in particular on unfavourable road surfaces.
Moving off or accelerating on snow, wet roads or loose ground – under these conditions ASR acceleration skid control reduces wheel slip to prevent the vehicle from skidding.
In critical handling situations the Electronic Stability Program ESP® can keep the vehicle from skidding. With targeted brake interventions on individual wheels ESP® reduces oversteer or understeer tendencies and thus increases handling safety.
