Interactive Driving System Plus (IDS+) explained
Standard Astra Estate Chassis
Astra Estate Chassis with IDS+
IDS+ with CDC (Continuous Damping Control)
The Interactive Driving System (IDS+) chassis - offers the Astra driver an even more sporting driving experience. Thanks mainly to the electronic control of the suspension. Pressing the Sport switch activates the CDC function - CDC monitors the roll, pitch and yaw of the can, and changes the rate of damping on each wheel to optimise the handling, selectively stiffening the suspension.
This means the vehicle will exhibit a reduced rate of roll and pitch, making it more responsive during direction changes and more settled during the braking/turn-in/acceleration transition when cornering.
CDC is a major breakthrough in the Astra segment of the market.
