The DYNAMIC SELECT switch lets you select particularly comfortable, sporty, efficient – or fully customised – handling characteristics with a simple finger tap. Parameters such as the characteristics of the engine, transmission, suspension and steering system are adapted in line with the selected driving programme.
The standard setting is the balanced and consumption-optimised "Comfort" mode.
The driving programme "Sport" with more progressive steering response delivers greater agility and dynamic performance thanks to "sporty firm" suspension set-up (with AIR BODY CONTROL), spontaneous throttle response and modified shift points. Sporty performance can be further enhanced in "Sport+" mode. Consequently, the suspension (in conjunction with AIR BODY CONTROL) and the powertrain have an even more dynamic set-up.
The "Eco" driving programme is designed to keep fuel consumption to a minimum. This includes modifying accelerator response and shift points (with 9G-TRONIC PLUS). The output of equipment such as seat heating, rear window heating or air conditioner are also adapted.
The "Individual" mode allows the driver to vary individual parameters at will – from the steering and the powertrain to the suspension.
