Traction mode

This mode restricts the functions of the Traction Control System and Vehicle Dynamics Control system and thus delays utilizing their functions as a reaction to vehicle behavior in comparison with the Vehicle Dynamics Control mode. This mode should be used in driving situations where the vehicle dynamic performance will improve without decreasing engine torque control.

When the switch is pressed briefly during engine operation, the indicator light on the combination meter illuminates in green.

When the switch is pressed again to reactivate the Vehicle Dynamics Control system, the indicator light turns off.
