Réglage adaptatif du train roulant = adaptive suspension control system

How it works
To guarantee that the car can always adapt to the driving conditions, the Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC) features electric adjustable dampers. Each individual shock absorber is connected to a control device which calculates the optimum setting for each individual wheel from the sensor data and other system information (e.g. steering, braking and driving assist systems) it receives. This allows the system to react within milliseconds to bumps in the road, changing lanes or bendy roads.

neutral  philgoddard: Your answer says suspension, but your reference says chassis. I believe chassis is the only possible answer here - it's DCC, not DSC.

As with your question yesterday about cornering lights, they've given the French and the English in the same sentence. So you already have your answer!
