Driving Experience 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 “coasting” function (only available with automatic transmission) and ECO PRO Route (only available with the Navigation System Professional) further help to conserve fuel.
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. The “coasting” function allows the vehicle to coast along the road at up to 160 km/h when the driver takes his or her foot from the gas without braking. In Sport mode, the car responds more directly, allowing for a sportier driving style.
