Speed-Dependent Power Steering

The speed-dependent control of the power steering enhances manoeuvrability and comfort, consequently boosting safety. When the vehicle is manoeuvred at low speeds – for instance when getting into or out of a parking space – power assistance is at its maximum. This means that the car is very easy to handle. At higher speeds, an electronic sensing system gradually reduces the level of power assistance. In this way, the driver can control the car at high speed and keep it on the chosen line even more accurately than with conventional power steering.
