The function is adapted for off-road driving and driving with a trailer at low speed, up to approx. 40 km/h (25 mph).
With low-speed control, low gears and all-wheel drive are prioritised, which help to avoid wheelspin and provides better traction on all wheels. The accelerator pedal is less responsive in order to facilitate traction and speed control at low speed.
The function is activated together with hill descent control, (HDCHill Descent Control) which means that speed down steep hills can be controlled with the accelerator pedal, reducing the need to use the brake pedal. The system facilitates a low and even speed while driving on steep downhill gradients.
When LSC with HDC is activated by the Off Road driving mode, the feel of the accelerator pedal and engine response are changed.
The driving mode is not designed to be used on public roads.
The function is deactivated when driving at higher speeds and must be reactivated at a lower speed, if required.
