Electronic Stability Control in sport mode

The stability system (ESC1) is always activated and cannot be switched off. However, the driver can select ESC Sport Mode, which offers more active driving characteristics.

With the ESC Sport Mode sub-function selected, intervention from the system is reduced and more lateral movement is permitted, giving the driver more control of the vehicle than usual.

When ESC Sport Mode is selected, the function may seem to be disabled even though it continues to assist the driver.


When ESC Sport Mode is selected, the trailer stabilizer (TSA2) is switched off.

ESC Sport Mode also helps provide more traction, even if the vehicle gets stuck or is driving on a loose surface such as deep snow or loose sand.
