Drive Performance Control lets the driver choose between the Comfort mode, for standard engine and transmission settings, the ECO PRO mode, geared towards efficiency, and the Sport mode, which enables even more dynamic driving. The fuel-efficient ECO PRO mode intelligently adjusts the characteristics of the accelerator pedal and transmission, as well as the heating/air conditioning settings.
The ECO PRO mode reduces fuel consumption by up to 20 percent. The Route-Ahead Assist and ECO PRO Route (only available with Professional Navigation System) further help to conserve fuel. The Route-Ahead Assist uses the navigation system to assess local road conditions and give tips in advance. If there is a speed limit change around the next curve, the system advises the driver to slow down before turning.
ECO PRO Route also helps to ensure efficient use of fuel. It suggests 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, allowing for a sportier driving style.
