ETS/4ETS (Electronic Traction System)

WARNING
Observe "Important safety notes"

Traction control is part of ESP.

Traction control brakes the drive wheels individually if they spin. This enables you to pull away and accelerate on slippery surfaces, for example if the road surface is slippery on one side. On vehicles with 4MATIC, more drive torque is also transferred to the wheel or wheels with traction.

Traction control remains active if you deactivate ESP.
