The shift paddles on the steering wheel allow you to shift gears quickly while keeping both hands on the steering wheel. If the shift paddles on the steering wheel are used to shift gears in automatic mode, the trans‐ mission temporarily switches to manual mode. If the shift paddles are not used and the vehicle is not accelerated for a certain time, the system switches back into automatic mode if the selec‐ tor lever is in transmission position D. ▷ Shift up: pull right shift paddle. ▷ Shift down: pull left shift paddle. The vehicle only shifts up or down at appropriate engine and road speeds, e.g., it does not shift down if the engine speed is too high. The selected gear is briefly displayed in the in‐ strument cluster, followed by the current gear.
