Dynamic transmission mounts

Dynamic transmission mounts are included as part of the optional Sport Chrono Package. They are designed to enhance both performance and comfort.

The electronically controlled system minimizes the oscillations and vibrations of the entire drive train, especially the engine.

The transmission is bolted to the body by two mounts. Like any mass, it obeys the law of inertia. This means that it will continue moving in a uniformly straight line unless some force causes it to change direction. Put more simply: when you are driving into a bend, the vehicle will follow your steering but, at first, the mass of the drive train will not. This means that the rear of the vehicle will ultimately be pushed outwards as a result of the drive train’s force of inertia.

Dynamic transmission mounts minimize this effect. Steering angle and both longitudinal and lateral acceleration are constantly recorded by sensors. The stiffness and damping performance of the transmission mounts adapt to changes in driving style and road surface conditions, which is achieved by use of a fluid with magnetic properties. This results in greater traction, perceptibly more stable handling under load change conditions and in fast corners and, in conjunction with the ‘Launch Control’ function for example, extremely fast acceleration.

Using the SPORT or SPORT PLUS button you can switch the dynamic transmission mounts from ‘Normal’ to ‘Sport’ or ‘Performance’ mode and intensify your driving pleasure.

In conjunction with optional PCM, the G-Force graphic on the TFT screen in the right-hand circular instrument enables you to view the lateral and longitudinal forces as they act on the vehicle.
