Dynamic shift program

The dynamic shift program is a feature of automatic transmission. The gearbox control unit automatically selects the best gear based on engine map data and your current driving situation. The selection considers your current speed, the weight of a towed trailer and whether your car is travelling up or downhill.

The program also adapts to your driving style and adjusts the gearshift points accordingly. For example, if you have a sporty driving style, the engine will be allowed to rev higher through the gears. If you use the accelerator more lightly, however, the gearbox will change up earlier. This adaptation doesn’t affect the kickdown function, which is available in every situation.

By selecting the correct gear, gearboxes with dynamic shift ensure optimal engine output and keep fuel consumption and emissions low.
