DTC Dynamic Traction
DTC is a version of the DSC Dynamic Stability
Control where drive power is optimized.
The system ensures maximum drive power on
unusual road conditions, for instance unplowed
snow covered roads, or loose road surfaces, but
with somewhat limited driving stability.
When DTC is activated, the vehicle has maxi‐
mum traction. Driving stability is limited during
acceleration and when driving in curves.
You may find it useful to briefly activate DTC in
the following situations:
▷ When driving in slush or on uncleared, snow-
▷ When driving off from deep snow or loose
▷ When driving with snow chains.
