Fitted as standard, the rear-axle steering with sports tuning combines performance and everyday driveability. An electromechanical adjustment system at each rear wheel enables the steering angle to be adapted based on the current driving situation, steering input and vehicle speed.
The benefit at low speed: the system steers the rear wheels in the opposite direction to that of the front wheels. This has the virtual effect of shortening the wheelbase. You can drive around tight bends more dynamically. The turning circle is also reduced to make it easier to park.
The benefit at high speed: the system steers the rear wheels in the same direction as that of the front wheels. The virtual effect of lengthening the wheelbase increases driving stability and thus agility, especially during rapid lane changes or overtaking manoeuvres on the racetrack.
