Using Tiptronic, the gears can be shifted up and down manually in an automatic gearbox. The gear that is currently selected will be maintained when the Tiptronic programme is selected. This is the case if the system is not carrying out a change of gear due to the current driving situation.

Operating Tiptronic with the selector lever

  • Push the selector lever in position D to the right into the Tiptronic gate  .
  • Gently push the selector lever forwards ⊕ or to the rear ㊀ to shift gear up or down  .

Operating Tiptronic with the paddles

  • With driving programme D or S selected, use the paddles on the steering wheel  .
  • Pull the right paddle + towards the steering wheel to change up a gear.
  • Pull the left paddle – towards the steering wheel to change down a gear.
  • To leave the Tiptronic mode, pull the right-hand paddle + towards the steering wheel for approximately one second.

The Tiptronic mode will automatically be closed if the paddles are not used for some time.

NOTICE

  • When accelerating, the gearbox automatically shifts up to the next gear shortly before the maximum permitted engine speed is reached.
  • When shifting down gear manually, the gearbox will not change gear until the engine can no longer be overrevved.
