1st or 2nd gear can be selected for driving off.
To shift up automatically at the upper engine-speed limit:
Information Normal and Sport mode
There is no automatic upshift at the upper engine-speed limit in selector-lever position M. Upshift suppression can be canceled in Normal and Sport mode by kickdown operation.
The transmission shifts down to the lowest possible gear depending on the driving speed and engine speed.
If, for example, the engine-speed limit is reached during overtaking and an automatic upshift does not occur, the transmission shifts up in this case as a result of kickdown operation.
Information Off-road mode
The kickdown function is not available in selector-lever position M in Off-road mode.
If, for example, the upper engine-speed limit is reached during overtaking and an automatic upshift does not occur, the transmission only shifts up when you press a shift button (+) or pull the right shift paddle back (+) or briefly press the selector lever (+).
Manual selection mode failure
If manual mode fails, the control electronics system switches to automatic mode.
In this case, selector-lever position D will be displayed on the instrument panel.
In selector-lever positions D and M, the HOLD function makes it easier to drive off from a standstill on an upward slope when the engine is running without having to press the brake.
Driving in winter
In wintry road conditions, it is advisable to take steep inclines in manual mode M. This prevents gear changes occurring that could cause wheel spin.
