All-wheel drive provides optimum driving dynamics and traction even on the most difficult terrain.
In a permanent all-wheel drive system, the engine power is always transmitted to all of the wheels. Permanent all-wheel drive features a locking differential that guarantees total torque balancing with no power loss.
This system features a series of clutches that allow power to be juggled between the front and rear axles. This is done continually according to the given driving situation. In extreme cases the system uses Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) and Electronic Stability Control (ESP) to ensure that the entire engine power is transmitted to the front and rear axles as needed, e.g. in understeer or oversteer situations.
Tyre technology: Thanks to support ring technology - found predominantly in 7 series vehicles - the wheels will continue to turn even at zero pressure. In addition to the use of support ring technology, the wheel rims feature an integrated radio sensor that sends a direct signal to the on-board Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) in the event of zero tyre pressure.
Run-flat technologyis based on self-supporting wheels featuring wheel rims with a reinforced sidewall construction. The ABS sensor monitors tyre pressure by measuring the speed of revolution of a wheel in combination with the tyre circumference.
The system then alerts the driver of any loss in pressure via the tyre flation warning system (“RPA”). Depending on the vehicle, a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System can also be integrated.
Safety first: - Intercom systems
- Remote engine start via remote control
- Anti carjacking features
- GPS navigation system
- Bullet-proof glass and armoured vehicle body
- Hydro-pneumatic emergency exit e.g. through front windscreen
- Integrated oxygen supply/filter unit
- Fire extinguishing units
- Tear gas/poisonous gas sensors are automatically activated in the event of an attack, hermetically sealing the vehicle to protect its occupants.
