- Advanced Traction Cornering Control (ATCC) improves ride and handling for wagon
- Rear Electronic Damping Control System offers three drive modes
- Long wheelbase and wide track offer excellent handling and stability
The system uses electronic sensors to emulate the behaviour of a limited-slip differential during cornering, providing additional traction, better grip and improved handling. The computer-controlled system applies the brake to the inside wheel in a turn and directs more torque to the outside wheel, enhancing stability and boosting driver confidence. The operation is seamless, fully automatic and the small application of the brake is imperceptible to the driver.
The disc brakes, backed up by ESC, ABS, EBD and Brake Assist systems as standard, is carried over from the previous generation model.
The robust body shell, long wheelbase (2770 mm) and wide track 1591 mm in the front and 1597 mm in the rear were unchanged as they provide an excellent foundation for the fully independent suspension, by MacPherson Struts at the front and a multi-link system at the rear. The electric rack and pinion power steering with its responsive 2,78 turns of the steering wheel from lock-to-lock is also carried over.
