Changing gear

The automatic transmission shifts to the individual gears automatically when it is in transmission position D. This automatic gearshifting behavior is determined by:

  • a shift range restriction, if selected
  • the selected drive program E/S()
  • the position of the accelerator pedal
  • the road speed
