Rear wheel steering
On equipped vehicles, this system,
when the vehicle is being driven, steers
the rear wheels according to driving
conditions: at low speed this system
offers manoeuvrability, at higher speeds
it optimises stability.
When driving at low speeds, the rear
wheels steer in the opposite direction to
the front wheels (figure A) to increase
the vehicle's manoeuvrability. This is
used when driving in towns, on winding
roads, during parking manoeuvres, etc.
When driving at speeds above 40 mph
(60 km/h), the rear wheels steer in the
same direction as the front wheels
(figure B) to optimise the vehicle's sta-
bility. This is useful when changing
lanes or when cornering etc.
