Amazing how works Grip Advanced Traction System Control on the new Peugeot 3008. We have been able to test these days in the ski resort of Val d'Isere, located in the heart of the Alps, and we have seen how, also associated with winter tires, It is certainly definitive to ensure good traction on all types of slippery surfaces such as snow or ice sheets.
The application of electronic systems in the car seems to have no limits. Peugeot has thus now patented system traction control edge adding new functionality, providing greater tractive capacity on surfaces with low adhesion, as snow, sand or mud. A rotary switch five positions lets you choose the configuration that best adapts to ground conditions by which we circulate, while the new system of assistance descent control reduces the risk of slippage or loss of vehicle control on steep slopes, flowing both forward and reverse.
The new Advanced Grip Control system is already available for versions of the Peugeot 3008 (You can read his test with all our measurements) with manual transmission and automatic transmission EAT6. Total costs 700 euros and it includes ESP stability control with ASR, five programs and alloy with M + S 225/55 R18 tires as.
A very simple system to use
Good tires and traction control last batch they provide a spectacular motor skills. During testing we had the chance to feel the traction of the Peugeot 3008 equipped with the Advanced Grip Control system in different scenarios: snow, ice and wet winter tires and mixed asphalt and the results were spectacular. Even in some exercises were obtained best results with this Peugeot 3008 actually front-wheel drive ... than those achieved by a Peugeot 4008, with conventional tires and system four-wheel drive.
And the new traction control system does not limit the speed of the engine, but allows the new Peugeot 3008 a cast of adequate torque to each wheel front, so that achieves a greater traction. In the case of pending control system, the device allows connection below 70 km / h, but does not act until the speed is below 30 km / h. The system adapts to the slope gradient: 5 to 8% the system limits the speed at 17 km / h, while above 8% tilt speed is adjustable between 3 and 17 km / h, even in neutral. On gentle slopes, once the vehicle starts to descend you can release the brake and throttle pedals because the system regulates the speed. If the gearbox has engaged the 1st or 2nd gear, the vehicle speed is reduced and the HADC indicator flashes quickly. With steep inclination can be activated control system decreases the vehicle putting into neutral and the speed is reduced to 3 km / h to increase security.
5 modes Peugeot 3008
With the Grip Advanced Control System the driver can determine at any time whether to allow the Peugeot 3008 act intelligently, through Normal mode, or select manually how you want to use. Normal mode is intended to land without adhesion problems, while the Snow mode instantly adapts the traction control at each wheel as required by the situation.
He Barro mode can circulate freely by land or wet grass, transferring the maximum possible torque to the wheel that has more grip. It works like a limited slip differential and is active below 80 km / h. He Arena mode It maintains simultaneous sliding of the two wheels to allow progression on soft ground and thus reduce the risk of entrapment. It runs up to 120 km / h and above switches to Normal mode. Finally, the ESP off mode It allows you to disconnect the Peugeot 3008 totally ESP and Grip Control up to 50 km / h, if necessary.
