Does the BMW 2 Series Have Traction Control?

Not long ago, cars were updated to include limited slip technology to the differential operating the drive wheels. Limited slip allowed one wheel to rotate faster than the other when taking a corner or traveling over bumps. Though the system limited some of the slippages, it could not eliminate it.

Electronic traction control is more effective at limiting excess in one wheel. In the BMW 2 Series, the traction control operates off the same sensors used by the Anti-lock Brake System to register the speed at which a wheel is spinning in comparison to other wheels. When an excess spin rate is noted, the system automatically brakes that wheel bringing it in line with the other wheels.

At BMW of Fairfax, our certified technicians check and maintain your traction control system at every service. The importance of an active traction control system cannot be exaggerated.
