TECHNOLOGY

2008 SUV comes with innovative lifestyle technology to ensure maximum convenience.

New 2008 SUV grip control in low grip conditions

GRIP CONTROL®

Grip Control® is an adapted traction control system which responds to most terrains and weather conditions. It acts on the front wheels by adjusting wheel spin and torque to optimise traction in low-grip conditions.
 
Versatile and adaptable, this system has control built in. The Grip Control® dial located on the centre console lets you choose the appropriate mode for the surface you encounter. Coupled with 17” Alloy wheels and Mud & Snow tyres, it is now compatible with the EAT6 automatic gearbox. Grip Control® uses electronic components that are already installed in the car meaning that it adds no extra weight and therefore no excessive fuel consumption, unlike a traditional 4x4.

Grip Control® is standard from Allure level, excluding 1.2L PureTech 82.

New 2008 SUV grip control

Grip Control® offers five driving modes:

- Standard
- Snow
- Mud
- Sand
- ESP Off

PARK ASSIST

i

Park Assist* makes life easier by assessing the size of parking space available to ensure that it fits the dimensions of your 2008 SUV. Ultrasonic sensors and steering management take over to manoeuvre into a parallel parking space for you. Acceleration, braking, gear changes and use of the clutch in a manual transmission are left in your control. Exiting the parking space is just as easy – as Park Assist* will do this for you too!
 
*Optional on Allure & GT Line.
