Rear-axle steering is available for all Panamera Sport Turismo models on request. It enhances performance and everyday driveability in equal measure.
During low-speed manoeuvres, the system steers the rear wheels in the opposite direction to that of the front wheels. This has the virtual effect of shortening the wheelbase. The turning circle is reduced, agility is increased and parking becomes noticeably easier to manage.
During high-speed manoeuvres, the system steers the rear wheels in the same direction as that of the front wheels. This virtual extension of the wheelbase increases driving stability.
Rear-axle steering makes it clear that there is no contradiction between stability and agility or performance and everyday driveability. The result: greater manoeuvrability and driving safety in everyday use – and a significant increase in maximum driving performance.
