In our case, moreover, optional adaptive dampers contribute their bit and help to bring about the most immediate support, along with an extremely precise aplomada footprint and reducing unwanted movements of the body and getting a great balance between comfort, stability and efficiency.

The electronic aids, meanwhile, are also taradas for greater efficiency, particularly the XDS, what emulates a limited slip differential by selective actuation of the brakes. The result is that you can accelerate in the turn and the front digests power barely a murmur, almost without altering its trajectory in situations where you should see some understeer, without jerks in the direction despite the high torque available. The back rounds it right, making the general reactions of the car are very neutral, but stop being reactive and responding to any demand without hesitation.

It is very accurate at high speed -the central area is more desmultiplicada- and when parking, turn a corner or take a hairpin bend, turn the steering wheel less because it is faster. In any case, it has a very conservative moron and does not come to the fore at any time, nor does it require any period of adaptation on our part.
