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.
Gears are selected automatically so that you can drive as energy-efficiently as possible. The gearbox also has a manual gearshift mode.
Changing gear with automatic gearbox
Change gear position by pressing the spring-loaded gear selector forwards or backwards, or sideways for manual shifting.
Symbols and messages for the transmission
If a fault should occur in the gearbox, a symbol and a message are shown in the driver display.
All-wheel drive (AWD* ) means that the car is driving all four wheels at the same time, which improves traction.
Gear selector inhibitor
The gear selector inhibitor prevents accidental changing between different gear positions in an automatic gearbox.
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.
