Changing between the driving modes alters various vehicle settings. For example, the engine's revolution speed (rpm) may alter while at a constant accelerator pedal position. The adaptive dynamics suspension and the steering system may also feel heavier or lighter. The setting changes are not dramatic but are noticeable.
During manual gear selection, with the dynamic driving mode selected and the transmission in Sport (S), transmission up-shifts are fully controlled by the driver. In this condition, an automatic transmission does not change up automatically, even when the engine's revolution (rpm) speed limit is reached. The instrument panel briefly illuminates the gearshift indicator warning lamp at the recommended (up-shift) gear change point.
