The Driving Performance Control offers the driver the choice between COMFORT mode with its standard engine and transmission settings, ECO PRO mode, which is geared towards greater efficiency, and SPORT mode, which enables even more dynamic driving.
ECO PRO mode adjusts the characteristics of the accelerator and transmission as well as the heating/air conditioning settings to make the drive as fuel-efficient as possible, offering fuel savings of up to 20 percent*. Further fuel savings can be achieved using the "cruising" mode, the route ahead assistant and ECO PRO route. The route ahead assistant uses the navigation system to assess local road conditions and give tips in advance. If there is a speed limit change around the next bend, the system advises the driver to slow down before the bend.
ECO PRO route further helps to ensure the efficient use of fuel, suggesting an efficiency optimised route that takes into account the volume of traffic, individual driving style and local conditions.
In SPORT mode, the car responds more directly, leading to a more dynamic driving experience.
