Dynamic Chassis

The dynamic chassis setting is tuned to enhance fun to drive. High level of body control and precise response and steering feel are key properties. The setting preserves a ride comfort level supporting long distance travelling. The component difference between standard and dynamic chassis is damper setting, springs and anti-roll bars.

Comfort Chassis

The wide wheelbase and the advanced chassis promote balanced handling and a high level of comfort. The rigid body enables the Multi-link rear and McPherson spring strut front suspension to cope predictably and consistently with all types of roads.

The front and rear suspensions also interact to provide stable braking and smooth steering. In a curve, the rear wheels have a slight steering facility for added stability and steering response.

All-wheel Drive with Instant Traction

The advanced Haldex® AWD system with Instant Traction™ has an electronic management system that constantly monitors the speed of the wheels, the throttle, engine torque, engine speed and the brakes.

As driving conditions change, wheels with the best grip get the most power. When a tire loses traction, power is reduced to that wheel and instantly transferred to the more sure-footed wheels.

Five-Speed Geartronic Automatic Transmission

Geartronic offers the best of two worlds. Leave it in five-speed automatic mode for carefree driving, or nudge it into manual mode to shift gears yourself.

This allows you to maintain a lower gear, for example, to provide added engine braking as you approach a bend or curve. The automatic transmission is also perfect if you need to get the car to crawl slowly with a heavy load under difficult conditions.
