There are four modes included in this feature: ECO, which helps conserve fuel; Comfort, which gives you a more relaxing drive and is the default setting; Sport, which increases throttle response and shift points, and an Individual mode which allows you to customize the mode to your personal preference, getting as much or as little of each aspect of the other modes as you choose.
