The new system sees the introduction of active electromechanical anti-roll bars. These provide a much faster response and are tuned for sporty driving. The result: improved performance.
In combination with new PDCC Sport, PTV Plus enhances driving dynamics and stability. As a function of steering angle and steering speed, accelerator pedal position, yaw rate and vehicle speed, it improves steering response and precision by strategic braking of the right or left rear wheel. At high speeds and when accelerating out of corners, the electronically controlled rear differential lock with fully variable torque distribution also acts to provide greater driving stability and traction.
The overall result? Strong resistance to destabilising side forces for self-assured poise. Excellent traction. Great agility at every speed – with precise turn-in and well-balanced load transfer characteristics. And, accordingly, even more fun in the corners.
* The data presented here was recorded using the Euro 5 test procedure (715/2007/EC, 692/2008/EC, 566/2011/EC and ECE-R 101/01) and the NEDC (New European Driving Cycle). The respective figures were not recorded on individual vehicles and do not constitute part of the offer. This data is provided solely for the purpose of comparison between the respective models. Fuel consumption was recorded on vehicles with standard specification. Optional equipment may affect fuel consumption and vehicle performance. Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are not only determined by a vehicle’s fuel efficiency, but also by the driving style and other factors irrespective of vehicle specification.
