Comfortable, sporty, winter-optimised, off-road-capable 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 mode chosen.
The balanced and consumption-optimised "Comfort" setting is active by default whenever the ignition is switched on.
The "Sport" drive mode, with a more direct steering characteristic curve, a sportier damping setting and modified shift points, offers greater agility and dynamism. In conjunction with the AIRMATIC package a tauter damper setting and a sportier setting of the suspension, which is lowered by 15 millimetres, are included.
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 "Offroad" and "Offroad+" drive programmes (in conjunction with the Offroad Engineering package) offer optimum settings for off-road operation far off the beaten track.
The "Individual" drive program allows the driver to vary individual parameters at will with complete freedom – from the steering to the drivetrain to the suspension.
For the Mercedes-AMG GLS 63 4MATIC, AMG DYNAMIC SELECT is available, featuring the additional drive programme "Sport+" which further enhances the characteristics of the "Sport" drive programme. The suspension is lowered by 25 millimetres and its setting is especially taut.
