Some vehicles are supplied with the rain/ice/snow driving mode instead of the Adaptive Surface Response (AdSR) driving mode. See RAIN/ICE/SNOW.

The AdSR driving mode detects different surfaces and helps to enhance the vehicle's progress and stability. For example, when driving on low grip, medium grip, and soft surfaces.

The selection of the AdSR driving mode is recommended when driving in adverse weather and driving conditions. For example, in icy or rainy conditions and on surfaces such as grass, mud, gravel, deep sand, or deep snow.

The AdSR driving mode helps the vehicle to perform in a gentle and controlled manner, helping to avoid skidding and improve progress in adverse conditions.


The AdSR driving mode remains selected indefinitely, even after the ignition is switched off. The AdSR driving mode must be deselected, if no longer required.

The low friction launch feature can also help to further enhance low speed maneuvering and pulling away from a standstill in adverse conditions. See LOW FRICTION LAUNCH.

Fitting winter tires and all-season tires can also help to further enhance the vehicle's stability in adverse weather conditions. See USING WINTER TIRES.
