“Advanced Grip Control featureThis is very useful because Indonesia has very diverse road conditions. With this feature, the owners of the Peugeot 3008 and 5008 SUV in Indonesia will be better prepared when they have to go through unexpected road conditions. ” said Samsudin, as the National Technical Advisor of Astra Peugeot.
Snow Mode, a feature that some people might consider unused in Indonesia, can still play an important role in dealing with several situations in Indonesia. This feature gives the car the ability to adapt to the grip strength of each wheel. In this condition, when the car is moved from a static condition by optimizing the rotation of the wheels so that it can accelerate optimally based on the available traction. In Indonesia, this feature is useful when going through very steep / steep road conditions.
Mud Mode, a feature for muddy road conditions, provides access to the wheels with the least traction. Abundant wheel rotation when you want to move the car from a static condition. Generally, it occurs on muddy roads. This is easier because the fast spinning of the wheels on the low traction wheels helps to get rid of the sludge for maximum traction.
Sand Mode, this mode is very useful when going through sandy roads. This mode provides access for the two drive wheels to turn low but repeatedly to avoid the wheels trapped in the sand. This often happens when you force the wheels to turn quickly on a road filled with sand.
Normal Mode, this mode provides a calibrated wheel system with each other. This is the most ideal mode when going through paved roads in general.
ESP OFF, this mode is disconnected dynamic stability control(ESP) and traction assistance (ASR) give the driver complete control of the torque transferred to the two drive wheels. However, for safety, this feature will connect at speeds above 50 km / hour.
