Comfortable, sporty, winter-optimised or entirely individual suspension settings can be easily called up using the DYNAMIC SELECT Controller on the centre console. Parameters such as engine, transmission and steering characteristics are modified in accordance with the drive program chosen (suspension settings only in conjunction with the optional AIRMATIC package).
Four different drive programs can be selected using the Controller on the centre console. When the engine is started the balanced, consumption-optimised "Comfort" setting is selected as standard.
The "Sport" drive mode, with a more direct steering characteristic curve, a sportier damping setting and modified shift points, offers greater agility and dynamism.
Drive mode "Slippery" delivers optimised handling on iced-over and snow-covered road surfaces. This is made possible by reduced engine and transmission settings which ensure the best possible propulsion. Improved ESP® regulation and increased metering capability of the drive forces contribute towards greater drive stability.
The "Individual" drive program allows the driver to vary individual parameters at will – from the steering to the drivetrain to the suspension.
