  • Optional Adaptive Dynamics system2 utilizes adaptive dampers to further enhance low-speed ride comfort as well as improving handling and agility at higher speeds3
  • On AWD models equipped with optional Adaptive Dynamics, the JDC system features unique Adaptive Surface Response mode (AdSR), which distinguishes between different types of surfaces for additional traction2
