Adjustable steering force*

Updated 7/23/2018

Steering force increases with the speed of the car to give the driver enhanced sensitivity. The steering is firmer and more immediate on motorways. Steering is light and requires no extra effort when parking and at low speed.

The driver can choose between three different levels of steering force for road responsiveness or steering sensitivity. The setting is made in the menu system MY CAR. For a description of the menu system, see MY CAR.

This setting cannot be accessed while the car is in motion.

Note

In certain situations the power steering may become too hot and then needs to be temporarily cooled - during this time the power steering operates with reduced power and turning the steering wheel may then be perceived to be slightly heavier.

In parallel with the temporarily reduced steering assistance the combined instrument panel shows a message.
