Grip control

Special patented traction control system which improves traction on snow, mud and sand.

This system is combined with all-season M+S (Mud and Snow: 215/60 R16) tyres which offer an excellent compromise between safety, grip and traction.

This system, the operation of which has been optimised for each situation, allows you to manoeuvre in most conditions of poor grip (encountered during touring use).

The accelerator pedal should be pressed sufficiently to allow the system to use the power of the engine. The electronics will ensure optimum management of the various parameters. Operation at high engine speeds is completely normal.

Each time the ignition is switched off, the system returns to standard mode (ESP).

Normal mode

Normal mode

Standard mode which is calibrated for a low level of wheel spin, based on the different levels of grip normally encountered on the road.

Place the dial in this position.

Snow mode

Snow mode

Mode which adapts its strategy to the conditions of grip encountered for each of the two front wheels on moving off.

When moving, the system optimises wheel spin to provide the best acceleration possible for the grip available.

Place the dial in this position.

Mud mode

Mud mode

considerable spin on the wheel with the least grip to optimise clearing of the mud and regain grip. At the same time, the wheel with the most grip is controlled in such a way as to pass as much torque as possible.

When moving, the system optimises wheel spin to respond to the driver's requirements as fully as possible.

Place the dial in this position.

Sand mode

Sand mode

Mode which allows little spin on the two driving wheels at the same time to allow the vehicle to move forward and limit the risks of getting stuck in the sand.

Do not use the other modes on sand as the vehicle may become stuck. Place the dial in this position.

Do not use the other modes on sand as the vehicle may become stuck.

Your vehicle is designed principally to drive on tarmac roads but it allows you to drive on other less passable terrain occasionally.
However, it does not permit all-terrain activities such as:

- crossing and driving on terrain which could damage the underbody or strip away components (fuel pipe, fuel cooler, ...) due to obstacles or stones in particular,
- driving on terrain with steep gradients and poor grip,
- crossing a stream.
