Electronic adjustment of rigidity of depreciation (EDC) * and adjustment of a road gleam

The system automatically provides at any time necessary depreciation of a running gear, promoting bigger comfortableness of the car and traffic safety.

Automatic fine tuning

Automatic fine tuning becomes more active after each launch of the engine. It keeps the action in all ranges of speed of the movement of the car and at any its loading. If traffic conditions change (a condition of a roadbed, turn, braking, etc.), then the effort of depreciation for only a few fractions of a second is automatically brought into accord with the changed conditions.

Sports program

For its inclusion turn the ignition key in situation 2 and press the EDC key (it is shown by an arrow). At the same time the control lamp near a letter S will light up.

It is necessary to include the sports program if you in any service conditions prefer sports style of driving.

Switching to automatic fine tuning
Again press a key, the control lamp at the same time will go out.

Adjustment of a road gleam *

The regulator installed on the back bridge provides a constant road gleam at any loading of the car.

For this purpose on the back bridge instead of ordinary shock-absorbers and steel springs pneumatic depreciation racks are established. The electronic control system determines by two sensors the actual height of a body over the road and if necessary connects the compressor which is pumping up compressed air in racks.

Thanks to increase in pressure at increase in loading the regulator not only provides a constant road gleam, but also comfortable depreciation at the movement irrespective of loading of the car.
