Electronic Stability Control in sport mode

Electronic Stability Control in sport mode

The stability system (ESCElectronic Stability Control) is always activated – it cannot be switched off. However, the driver can select ESC Sport Mode, which allows for a more active driving experience.

With the ESC Sport Mode subfunction selected, intervention from the system is reduced and the car is allowed to skid more and greater control than normal is thus transferred to the driver.

When ESC Sport Mode is selected, the function can be considered as deactivated, despite the function continuing to help the driver in many cases.

Note

With ESC Sport Mode selected, Trailer Stability Assist (TSATrailer Stability Assist) is deactivated.

ESC Sport Mode also provides more traction even if the car has become bogged down or is driving on a loose surface, such as in sand or deep snow.
