Rybrook Jaguar Driving Tips for Adverse Conditions
Posted in News | 04/01/2019
As the British Winter has made its way onto our roads, we have some helpful tips for getting the most out of your Jaguar in the icy & wet conditions.
DRIVING MODES OPERATION
Selecting a driving mode coordinates the vehicle’s systems to suit the prevailing driving conditions and the current driving style.
Use the buttons, located on the center console, to move through the different driving modes.
The currently selected driving mode's LED indicator lamp illuminates to confirm selection. The instrument panel displays a temporary confirmation message and the relevant driving mode icon, except for the normal driving mode.
LOW FRICTION LAUNCH
Low friction launch can help to further enhance low speed maneuvering and pulling away from a standstill, in adverse conditions. Low friction launch is an extra feature that can be enabled, or disabled, via the Touch screen.
It is recommended that Rain/Ice/Snow driving mode, or Adaptive Surface Response (AdSR) driving mode, is enabled.
To allow Low friction launch to be enabled, make sure that:
- The vehicle is stationary.
- The accelerator pedal is completely released.
- Rain/Ice/Snow (or AdSR) or Normal driving mode is enabled.
The rain/ice/snow driving mode helps to enhance the vehicle's stability in low grip conditions.
The selection of the rain/ice/snow driving mode is recommended when driving in adverse weather conditions. For example, in icy or rainy conditions and on surfaces such as grass, gravel, or snow.
The rain/ice/snow driving mode helps the vehicle to perform in a gentle and controlled manner, helping to avoid skidding and improve progress in adverse conditions.
The rain/ice/snow driving mode remains selected indefinitely, even after the ignition is switched off. The rain/ice/snow driving mode must be deselected, if no longer required.
