The 8-speed Tiptronic S provides both comfort and dynamic agility. A particularly wide ratio spread enables excellent handling at acceleration and low engine speeds in the higher gears. This reduces both the noise level inside the vehicle and fuel consumption. The 8-speed Tiptronic S shifts gear automatically and adapts to your individual driving style.
In sport mode, the gear shifts are more dynamic. The gear shifting system is designed around direct throttle response and high consistent torque to provide ideal acceleration.
The extended auto start/stop function cuts the engine not only when the vehicle stops, but also if you are approaching traffic lights, for example.
