Peugeot 2008: Safety / Advanced Grip Control

This special patented traction control system improves grip on snow, mud and sand.

Peugeot 2008. Advanced Grip Control For optimum grip on snow, it is recommended that you fit the vehicle with winter tyres.

For optimum system performance, contact a PEUGEOT dealer for advice on the right tyre fitting.

Peugeot 2008. Advanced Grip Control Recommendations

The vehicle is designed principally to drive on tarmac roads, but it allows you to occasionally drive on other less passable terrain.

However, it does not permit off-road driving such as:

Operating modes

Snow

This mode adapts its strategy to the conditions of grip encountered for each of the two front wheels on moving off.

(mode active up to 50 mph (80  km/h))

Mud

This mode, when moving off, allows considerable spin on the wheel with the least grip to optimise clearing of the mud and to regain grip. At the same time, the wheel with the most grip is controlled in such a way as to transmit as much torque as possible.

When moving, the system optimises wheel spin to respond to the driver's requirements as fully as possible.

(mode active up to 31 mph (50  km/h))

Sand

This mode allows little spin on the two driving wheels at the same time to allow the vehicle to move forward and limit the risks of getting stuck in the sand.

(mode active up to 75 mph (120  km/h))

Peugeot 2008. Advanced Grip Control Do not use the other modes on sand as the vehicle may become stuck.

Activation/Deactivation
