Not sure if this has been tested but if I had to guess I would say yes. Dynamic keeps the engine in its sweet spot; so that means it holds gears longer, is quicker to downshift etc. etc. Im not sure there would be a difference if you were cruising at 60/70 mph but if you were hitting stop lights, sitting in traffic etc. I think the best mode to be in would be eco (really tones down acceleration and increases the amount of throttle input needed to go above 3000 rpm).Took a road trip yesterday in the dynamic driving mode and was wondering if this mode effects gas milage vs the standard mode?
I ran ECO mode once and noticed the cabin was getting stuffy - didn't realize at the time that the blower fan speed is affected. I'll stick to dynamic mode!The possible automatic changes are as follows:
The heated seats are switched off.
The climate seats are switched off.
The heated steering wheel is switched off.
The heated windshield does not automatically switch on when the engine is started, if configured to switch on via the CLIMATE SETTINGS. See FRONT CLIMATE CONTROL.
The auto blower speed is set to low, if currently set to a high speed.
The audio volume may also be adjusted if it is currently set to a high volume.
The ECO driving mode may also make subtle changes to the level of the cabin's air recirculation and to the level of heating or cooling.
Someone mentioned the ability to permanently disable the on/off "fuel saving" switch. How is this done? Can't wait to kill that nuisance.
Call it what you want. It simply involves disconnecting (unplugging) a single wire behind a panel in the cargo compartment.Just search the forum. It's a hardware hack where you go in back and unplug something from the battery.
