Audi drive select—Comfort

Comfort mode favors a softer suspension[2] and boosted steering power assistance that is ideal for long-distance travel.

Audi drive select—Auto

Auto mode provides the most balanced engine and chassis response.

Audi drive select—Dynamic

Dynamic mode provides the best engine and chassis settings for performance driving conditions.[2] The suspension[3] is optimized for handling and body control, the steering is heavier for a more direct feel, and the shift pattern is tuned for immediate response.
