Activating and deactivating sport mode for electronic stability control

The stability system (ESC1) is always activated – it cannot be switched off. However, the driver can select sport mode, which allows for a more active driving experience. With sport mode selected, interventions from the ESC system are reduced and the car is allowed to skid more and greater control than normal is thus transferred to the driver.
