Kick-down can be used when maximum acceleration is needed, such as for overtaking.
The gearbox is part of the car's powertrain (power transmission) between engine and drive wheels. The function of the gearbox is to change the gear ratio depending on speed and power requirements.
Gear positions for automatic gearbox
With an automatic gearbox, the system chooses the gear so that driving is optimal. The gearbox also has a manual gearshift mode.
All-wheel drive (AWD* ) means that the car is driving all four wheels at the same time, which improves traction.
Gear shift indicator
The gear shift indicator in the driver display shows the current gear during manual gearshifting and when it is appropriate to engage the next gear for optimum fuel economy.
