Eco when in Manhattan or close to the city. Normal 90% of the time. Dynamic when I want to blow the doors off a Benz, BMW or an Audi.Dynamic-Normal-Eco
What is your favorite combo?
While Dynamic-S is certainly the most thrilling I find it a little jerky for all driving types. I like Dynamic-D.
There is a HUGE difference between ECO and normal, it mainly being throttle response. You really have to get into the gas on ECO, not so much on normal though haha, just wait until you try out dynamic!I have been cruising around in ECO mode since I got mine, Yesterday I switched to Normal, and boy what a difference, so I think from now on I am going to be a normal person.
Wow! 8mpg. I thought I was bad averaging around 15mpg. I drive mainly in Normal-D but I will have to try some S driving to see the difference. I have enough trouble keeping my foot out of it in D so I imagine S is going to make it even tougher.My favorite is Dynamic, however, I normally drive in Normal mode but need to spend some time in Eco. I'm averaging under 8mpg currently with my driving.
Here are some of the changes in ECO 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.
Thanks, that makes sense and is how I'm hoping it works.That is directly from the owners manual. What I believe happens, is that if you have cooled seats on, when you put it in eco mode it will turn them off. As well as it will turn down the fan for the AC as well. I believe you can go back and turn each one back on manually though.
