2000 November: The Electronic Traction System (4ETS) was upgraded. An "intelligent brake force booster" is said to build pressure faster and to react more quickly to wheel spin. It also operates in low range if brake and accelerator are both depressed to assist in starts on very steep hills. 4ETS can now also cause the car to descend steep hills at a constant speed in low range (in the style of Land Rover's hill descent control).
