Sport mode for electronic stability control

Updated 7/23/2018

The ESCElectronic Stability Control system 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 ESC 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, ESC can be considered as deactivated, despite helping the driver in many cases.


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

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