What could it be??

So I'm in Eco-pro with cruise set at 65 mph coming off a motorway slip road and go round quite a tight bend, as I'm coming around the bend the car drops the revs a little then goes back to normal when I'm out of the bend. I didn't feel any loss of traction or slipping at all??

Hmmm, interesting. So for I haven't experienced that yet.

Thanks for sharing, I'll test that someday.

Did you notice the traction light flash at all on the dash, sounds like it might have triggered as it cuts power when it senses any slip. I've had same happen once or twice when taking a sharp turn even though I felt no slipping.

"My CPU is a neuronet processor; a learning computer."

It's probably your traction control warning you to behave or else...

Perfectly normal. Cornering takes additional energy as forward momentum is lost (the car wants to keep going forward but instead is forced to go around the corner). The cruise is not all that aggressive and allows the car to slow.
