Comfort Mode

Does this actually alter the ride on a PFL?

Our Scirocco suspension alters but it’s a stand-alone setting.

Hi Lee

Keef beat me to it however just to clarify some details copied from my on-line guide as follows:

Mercedes-AMG vehicles

Drive program I (Individual)

In drive program I , the following properties of the drive program can be selected:

the drive (engine management)

the transmission management

the suspension (vehicles with AMG RIDE CONTROL)

ESP

Information on configuring drive program I with the multimedia system can be found in the Digital Owner's Manual.

Drive program C (Comfort)

Drive program C is characterised by the following:

the vehicle exhibits comfortable, economical driving characteristics.

the vehicle pulls away more gently in forward and reverse gears unless the accelerator pedal is depressed fully.

the vehicle has improved driving stability, e.g. on slippery road surfaces.

optimal fuel consumption resulting from the automatic transmission shifting up sooner. The vehicle is driven in the low engine speed range and the wheels are less likely to spin.

glide mode is available.

the ECO start /stop function is available.

Drive program S (Sport)

Drive program S is characterised by the following:

the vehicle exhibits sporty driving characteristics.

the automatic transmission shifts up later. Fuel consumption may be higher as a result of the later automatic transmission shift points.

the suspension exhibits stiff springing and damping settings (vehicles with AIR RIDE CONTROL).

glide mode is not available.

the ECO start /stop function is not available.

Drive program S+ (Sport Plus)

Drive program S+ is characterised by the following:

the vehicle exhibits particularly sporty driving characteristics.

the automatic transmission shifts up later.

Fuel consumption may be higher as a result of the later automatic transmission shift points.

the suspension exhibits particularly stiff springing and damping settings (vehicles with AIR RIDE CONTROL).

glide mode is not available.

the ECO start /stop function is not available.

Drive program RACE (vehicles with AMG RIDE CONTROL)

The RACE drive program is characterised by the following:

the vehicle exhibits driving characteristics suitable for the racetrack.

all vehicle systems are set for maximum sportiness.

the automatic transmission shifts up later.

fuel consumption may be higher as a result of the later automatic transmission shift points.

the suspension exhibits particularly firm springing and damping settings.
