Thinking on its feet
The Haldex clutch is an electronically controlled multi-plate clutch. The driving forces are distributed across the axles variably and adaptively according to different driving conditions. The general principle of the Haldex clutch is that it always allocates the driving forces to the axle with the better traction. In this way, 4MOTION is able to respond ideally and in a flash to any driving situation. Despite that capability, the accustomed feel of a front-wheel drive vehicle is retained. The possibility of torsional stresses on the drive train during parking and manoeuvring is eliminated. The Haldex clutch can also be combined without restriction with all driving dynamics control systems (ABS, EDL, ASR, EBD and ESP).
