Driving with snowchains : AdSR ? DSC off ?

Post by shadow » Wed Dec 23, 2020 9:35 am

Hi Dan,

I’ve just read the 2021 owner's manual searching for driving in snow conditions tips and I would need your advice.

I thought that AdSR would be the right mode for snow, but if you equip the cub with snow chains I've read that you need to deactivate the DSC.
The thing is.. you cannot do it on Comfort/Eco/AdSR mode (only Dynamic will allow it) !

So I'm confused :?
Is it :
Light snow > AdSR
Heavy snow conditions > snow chains >
Dynamic mode with DSC off, but it seems odd..
OR still AdSR with DSC on regardless of what the owner’s manual says.

The previous owner’s manual (2020) didn’t state that it is not possible to deactivate DSC in AdSR mode.

I've had a look at the manual and it certainly not clear.
Have you spoken to a dealer - Dan may be off for the Christmas break.

My local dealer first told me that it was probably a mistranslation.. then he tried to deactivate DSC with AdSR mode on a 2019 model so it worked.

After contacting him again, he said that he’ll look into it.

Will be good to know the outcome.

Good morning Shadow,
