Had a change to test the grip control yesterday here in the Eifel.
on our way to the Belgium border for shopping, the temp suddenly went down to 0 C and it started snowing.
The road was covered with a thin layer of snow and I noticed that the car was not quite driving in a streight line, more a sort of searching its way- Also cornering went very smooth .
Than I enabled the snow mode, and it was as of the car drove on rails.
Extra Benefit, braking was very smooth, without the extra power braking (which I hate, after 47 years I know how to brake).
I once saw a movie on YouTube (chinese) wo had the same experience, but there was much more snow.

I think Grip Control is working, by the way I saw a pic of the new Range Rover, and this car has also a Grip Control.

I get Grip Control because I thought that the car maybe is better to handle on icy roads. Here roads are icy and snowy from end of october to beginning of may. Now I have tried it and I can leave my yard despite that yesterday it were snowing about 20 cm and my snow blower broke:-( I have about 80 m from house to main road. Little uphill.

Good to know that, I'm living in a country where we also get snow in the winter, so anything that helps traction is a plus for me.

Had our c3 aircross 18 months,
Have tried hill descent a few times, but never the grip control till today.
Drove over a tricky bit of snow covered rd in south Cumbria... a rd that I would not attempt in my own ds4.
Found the car drove much like on dry tarmac, no issues with grip.
Drove as to the rd, took it easy under power, passed a stuck x3.... descended the hill and it felt great . No twitching under brakes on a steep hill.
Didn't feel abs kick in. Just a steady flutter as the system worked.
Glad the car has it,
