On motorways the steering feels firmer. When parking and at low speed steering is light and requires only a slight effort.
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 driver display shows a message.
Change the steering force level*
To select the steering force level, go to the "Drive modes" section and see the description at the alternative INDIVIDUAL under the heading "Selectable drive modes".
This setting is not accessible while the car is moving.
