Mercedes-Benz DYNAMIC SELECT is one of the most exciting new features to be introduced for the 2016 model year. Available on the Mercedes-Benz GLE and GLC, with many more models soon to follow, DYNAMIC SELECT gives drivers more control over their drives than ever before.
DYNAMIC SELECT is a system that gives drivers the opportunity to personalize the feel of the vehicle’s engine and suspension to fit their unique needs and preferences. In the Mercedes-Benz GLC, there are 5 distinct modes from which to choose — ECO, COMFORT, SPORT, SPORT+, and INDIVIDUAL.
Each program is represented by a visual on the GLC’s central media display, but to help you understand the DYNAMIC SELECT driving modes on the Mercedes-Benz GLC, we broke them down item by item so you know exactly what to expect.
When in ECO mode, you can expect to get the most mpgs out of your GLC. ECO mode adds a sailing function and an ECO display that promotes fuel-efficient driving practices.
Perfect for daily drives and longer trips, COMFORT mode is the most balanced of the selectable driving models. It provides a comfortable suspension and a good balance between ECO and SPORT.
When you’re after a few additional thrills behind the wheel, SPORT mode answers the call. While activated, the GLC will provide more direct steering and engine responses while the suspension stiffens up.
Building on everything SPORT mode supplies, SPORT+ takes it to the next level and delivers an even sportier ride.
Unsurprisingly, this is where drivers can truly personalize their drives. Take the elements you like most from the driving modes above and mix and match to create a drive you love. Of course, there are limitations to the combinations, as Mercedes-Benz ensures a safe and effective drive. Play around with this setting until you have it just right.
You’ll find identical or similar DYNAMIC SELECT features on other Mercedes-Benz models, including the GLE and upcoming Mercedes-Benz GLS. Get behind the wheel of the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC to experience the DYNAMIC SELECT system for yourself.
