Х comfort-oriented engine and transmission settings
Х optimal fuel consumption resulting from the automatic transmission shifting up sooner

Х the automatic transmission shifting up sooner. This results in the vehicle being driven at lower engine speeds and the wheels being less likely to spin

Drive program S is characterized by the following:
Х sporty engine and transmission settings Х the vehicle pulling away in first gear Х the automatic transmission shifting up later
Х the fuel consumption possibly being higher as a result of the later automatic transmission shift points
