First read and observe the introductory information and safety warningsвЂ‰
The gearbox changes the forward gears up and down automatically.
Driving down hills
The steeper the gradient, the lower the gear you will need. Lower gears increase the braking effect of the engine. Never allow the vehicle to roll down mountains or hills in the neutral position N.
Stopping the vehicle and pulling away when driving uphill
The steeper the incline, the lower the gear you will need.
If you wish to stop the vehicle or pull away when driving uphill, you should use the Hill Hold assist function вЂ‰ .
Vehicles without Hill Hold assist: When you stop the vehicle on an incline and the vehicle remains in gear, the vehicle must always be prevented from rolling by depressing the brake pedal or by applying the handbrake. The brake pedal or the handbrake should not be released until you start to pull away вЂ‰.
The kick-down mechanism enables maximum acceleration in the selector lever position D, S or in the Tiptronic position.
If the accelerator pedal is depressed fully, the gearbox will automatically shift to a lower gear, depending on speed and the engine revs. This will make use of the full vehicle acceleration вЂ‰.
The gearbox does not shift up to the next gear until the engine reaches the maximum engine speed for the gear.
WARNINGRapid acceleration can cause loss of traction and skidding, particularly on slippery roads. This could cause you to lose control of the vehicle, causing accidents and serious injuries.
