this was a major problem on the last gen as well when they were testing it against the older cayenne turbo, there is a way to fully disable it but only Mercedes can do it apparently.

I buy a Mercedes primarily for safety and less for performance. I rather make it to my destination alive, even if a second slower than a Cayenne.

To be fair, they should have driven both like most people would drive them, with nannies turned on both cars, and then see who wins.

I don't know why the belt tightened on that guy....I only notice that when I first put it on.

it tightens if it senses an imminent crash/roll-over

Its also a wet track so they lost traction pretty easily which set off the stability control. I think it would have fared much better on a dry day.
