FlexRide acts in two ways. Firstly, it lets you switch between three different driving modes to suit your mood: Normal, relaxed Touring or exciting Sport. And then, regardless of which mode you’re in, it automatically adjusts the damping to provide maximum safety and control.
The active all-wheel drive system improves handling and stability in all driving conditions. Adaptive 4x4 combines the best characteristics of conventional mechanical and hydraulic all-wheel drive systems.
The compound crank rear axle has been enhanced with the cleverly positioned Watt’s link to ensure excellent performance on every road. This innovative rear axle layout has advantages in size, weight and efficiency over a classical multi-link axel design. It also improves safety: the pivoting center link is attached to the underbody where it absorbs lateral forces on the suspension caused when cornering. Originally found in racing and rally cars, this technology has been further developed by Opel to reduce the noise of the road in the cabin.
For maximum grip with virtually zero torque steer, the GTC’s front suspension comes with high-performance struts (HiPerStruts for short), a sophisticated feature normally reserved for only a few radical sports cars of this size.
