Driving Modes:

Slippery: optimised for slippery road conditions, with reduced power and a flat torque curve for a driving impression oriented toward stability.

Sand: sporty setup for the best possible grip and steer ability on sandy slopes and in desert dunes.

Trail: safe driving at maximum performance on soft, muddy or slippery ground.

Comfort: comfortable and fuel-efficient driving, e.g. thanks to early upshifts. Suspension and steering are set up for an emphasis on comfort.

Individual: individual adjustment of the drive system, transmission, AMG DYNAMICS, suspension and exhaust system.

Sport: sporty characteristics thanks to a more swift response to the driver’s acceleration input, shorter gearshift times, earlier downshifts and significantly more emotive gearshifts owing to double de-clutching. A more unique suspension and steering arrangement.

Sport+: extremely sporty characteristics thanks to an even more agile throttle response, increased acoustic emphasis on double de-clutching during downshifts as well as selective torque control on upshifts with cylinder suppression for optimal shift times. Increased idle speed for faster pulling away. An even more dynamic setup for suspension, steering and drivetrain.
