SUV bodywork, off-road soul: the new DS 4 Cross represents the perfect model for those interested in a crossover with not indifferent off-road capabilities. An aspect also enhanced by a style that recalls this type of driving: think of the embossed black bumpers enriched with aluminum inserts, or the Glossy Black shadow line that matches the roof bars and grille, or the specific ‘CROSS logo ‘present on the doors that highlights the adventurous soul. But it is not just a design exercise.
Equipping the new DS 4 Cross also thinks about it Advanced Traction Control: it is a system that allows you to drive on treacherous surfaces such as snow, mud or sand thanks to an optimization of traction for both front wheels, which exploits the synergy of the electronic ESP control that regulates the stability of the vehicle. In combination with this system there are 19 ″ LIMA alloy wheels, specific all-season tires with M + S homologation for winter use, and the Hill Assist Descent Control functionality. The latter system is particularly interesting, which assists the driver when driving downhill on medium-steep slopes, on asphalt or unpaved roads by automatically acting on the brake and reducing the risk of skidding or loss of control of the vehicle. This function is active at speeds below 30 km / h.
Overall, there are three user-selectable modes for Advanced Traction Control: Snow, active up to 80 km / h, which constantly adapts the slip level to provide maximum traction according to the conditions of the surface; Mud, active up to 50 km / h, which allows slipping on the wheel with minimum grip until it starts to move, with the aim of facilitating the exit from the mud; And Sand, active up to 120 km / h, which allows a slight simultaneous slip on both driving wheels, to move the vehicle forward and limit the risk of silting up.
